Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.975 billion Aegisians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aegisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,270 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 379,923 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,258,578 per year while the poor average 7,560, a ratio of 431 to 1.

Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', healthcare funding has been cut, and crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Aegis-5's national animal is the Steel Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Reasonable rate of return.

Aegis-5 is ranked 79th in Lazarus and 1,126th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 11 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
