The Shizhu State of Aglrinia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Rici with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.863 billion Aglrinians 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taipore. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, military service is compulsory, and the ABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aglrinia's national animal is the Maned Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, its national religion is Zoroastrianism, and its currency is the Cranslou.
