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 notable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.062 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 2,820 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 399,365 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,698,743 per year while the poor average 21,855, a ratio of 123 to 1.

Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, the nation refuses to provide international aid, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles. 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 40th in Lazarus and 1,006th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 1,006 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
