The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 32.267 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 Education, Environment, 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 11,125 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 344,799 Flabbergasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, and retired racing Sharktopuses are served truffles for breakfast. 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 175,296th in the world and 6,746th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -36.61 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
