The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 34.966 billion Kaigians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt 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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaigian economy, worth an astonishing 13,001 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, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 371,838 Flabbergasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Lord Blake, and pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists. 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 208,803rd in the world and 8,920th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -75.03 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
