OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Aglrinia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Generalissimo Nihazov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.502 billion Aglrinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt 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 Beijilano. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 Lammergeier, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Zoroastrianism, and its currency is the Cranslou.

Aglrinia is ranked 11th in Audax and 8,978th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 267 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
