The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, prohibition of alcohol, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 36.625 billion Kaigians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowerstone. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaigian economy, worth an astonishing 14,148 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, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 386,302 Flabbergasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 90th in the world and 2nd in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 10,058.89 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
