The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.308 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 2,449 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 388,267 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,705,735 per year while the poor average 19,316, a ratio of 140 to 1.
All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, funding for education has been redirected into the military, homes have been banned from having any more than one wheel, and many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses. 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.
