The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.219 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 7%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, and the Steel Hawk is reportedly extinct. 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 3,623rd in Lazarus and 112,810th in the world for Best Weather, with -2,278 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
