The Republic of Gigan is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 606 million Giganians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The strong Giganian economy, worth 35.6 trillion Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 58,668 Yen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 189,610 per year while the poor average 13,718, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gigan's national animal is the kaiju, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Gigan is ranked 17,801st in the world and 4th in Shinka for Most Pro-Market, scoring 77 on the Rand Index.
