OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Shizhu State of Aglrinia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kudu with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.683 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 Taipore. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Drunk drivers are sentenced to death, violent criminals are doomed to be hunted by a psychotic billionaire, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. 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, its national religion is Zoroastrianism, and its currency is the Cranslou.

Aglrinia is ranked 40th in Audax and 107,186th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
