Overview Factbook 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 notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.167 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 2,377 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 385,590 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,184,691 per year while the poor average 9,591, a ratio of 332 to 1.

Citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. 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 12th in Lazarus and 246th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 12 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
