The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.68 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government 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 14%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Steel Hawk Lasagne is a hit, the number of children one can have is restricted by law, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. 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 12th in Lazarus and 277th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 22 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
