The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 31.942 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowerstone. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaigian economy, worth an astonishing 10,943 trillion Flabbergasts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 342,607 Flabbergasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bowerstone's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space, cars have been banned, Kaigian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, and arbitration is mightier than the sword. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 134,106th in the world and 5,820th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 33.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
