The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.843 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 enormous, 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 18%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, Kaas is a police state during international summits, and vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam. 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 54th in Lazarus and 1,517th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 761 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
