The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.004 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 government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business morass -- juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, membership in the state-owned Church of Aegis-5 is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Aegis-5's national animal is the Steel Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the Reasonable rate of return, and its currency is the Credit.

Aegis-5 is ranked 2,570th in Lazarus and 81,407th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 4 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
