The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, avant-garde cinema, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 32.273 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowerstone. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaigian economy, worth an astonishing 11,127 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 and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 344,803 Flabbergasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and children of nonreligious parents are often barred from school festival events. 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 2,102nd in the world and 37th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 9,073.02 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
