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 notable for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.697 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reveille City. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth an astonishing 12,595 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 490,140 Reveilles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Gift hampers filled with delicious beef jerky are sent to newly communist nations, military spending is on the increase, deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Gig em Aggies. 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 829th in the world and 4th in Texas for Largest Governments, scoring 64.64 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
