The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a huge, devout nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 551 million, 545 million of whom are zombies, 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 small, 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 2%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

All citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, criminals are executed and their property seized, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. 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 11th in Lazarus and 271st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 38 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Aegis-5 is currently researching a cure.
