Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.75 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 2,664 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 394,670 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,378,689 per year while the poor average 29,453, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

Government departments are almost broke due to the diversion of their funding to an experimental weather machine, the government seizes all major gold finds, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and protests are prohibited from blocking traffic. 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 6th in Lazarus and 228th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 17 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
