The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Justice D R Pepper with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, zero percent divorce rate, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.318 billion Aggies are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reveille City. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth an astonishing 11,961 trillion Reveilles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 491,870 Reveilles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires, the word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Gig Em Aggiesian Colonial Thesaurus, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Gig em Aggies's national animal is the Sauroposeidon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gig em Aggies is ranked 3,682nd in the world and 16th in Texas for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 11,761.99 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
