The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ban on automobiles, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 37.042 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 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 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaigian economy, worth an astonishing 14,554 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 392,929 Flabbergasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lord Blake's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, Kaigi is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and it's best to decline if Lord Blake offers to buy a round of drinks. 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 46th in the world and 3rd in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 100.56 on the Human Development Index.
