The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.432 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 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 7%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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 3,352nd in Lazarus and 113,434th in the world for Nudest, with 28 Cheeks per Square Mile.
