The United Commonwealths of Gagium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Arsène Rodier with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, strictly enforced bedtime, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.275 billion Gagiumishes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Louis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gagiumish economy, worth a remarkable 1,848 trillion Gagis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 294,646 Gagis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,148,261 per year while the poor average 51,632, a ratio of 22.2 to 1.

The Gagium Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, and tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gagium's national animal is the Pelican, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gagium is ranked 30,264th in the world and 14th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Stationary, with 487.05575078412 Days.
