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 keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.079 billion 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 large, 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 15%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', military spending recently hit a new high, breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, and a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Aegis-5's national animal is the Steel Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is the Reasonable rate of return, and its currency is the Credit.

Aegis-5 is ranked 34th in Lazarus and 520th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 577 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
