Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 28.484 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, well-organized 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 9,573 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 336,084 Flabbergasts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Kaigian Liberator", the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. 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 483rd in the world and 16th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 12,284.55 Prayers Per Hour.
