Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 27.942 billion Kaigians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowerstone. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaigian economy, worth a remarkable 9,242 trillion Flabbergasts a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 330,757 Flabbergasts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and an epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaigi's national animal is the Sharktopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Kaigi is ranked 85,399th in the world and 3,666th in The East Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,539.85 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
