The Corporate State of Aegis-5 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chairman of the board with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.31 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 2,966 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 405,879 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,446,244 per year while the poor average 30,289, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.
Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. 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.
