The Republic of Aegglos is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.574 billion Aegglosians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The thriving Aegglosian economy, worth 179 trillion marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 69,803 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 247,080 per year while the poor average 14,238, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Aegglos's national animal is the apple, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Aegglos is ranked 227,426th in the world and 190th in ainulindale for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 461.22 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
