Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.493 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 2,541 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 391,396 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,644,893 per year while the poor average 21,419, a ratio of 123 to 1.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Aegis-5's pristine beaches, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, bicyclists are banned from major roads, and the Great Aegis-5 Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region. 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 4,007th in Lazarus and 140,044th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 11 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
