The Kingdom of Kaigi is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Blake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 36.783 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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaigian economy, worth an astonishing 14,289 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 388,475 Flabbergasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, retired racing Sharktopuses are served truffles for breakfast, and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. 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 240,723rd in the world and 8,273rd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -55.9 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
