The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 31.914 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 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 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaigian economy, worth an astonishing 10,937 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 Gambling and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 342,702 Flabbergasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. 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 1,078th in the world and 22nd in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 90.44 Workforce Participation Rate.
