The Empire of Aegis-5 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Harrower with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.229 billion Aegisians 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."

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 5,262 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 468,691 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Emigrants arrive on foreign shores with nothing but pocket sand, the nation is under martial law, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Aegis-5's national animal is the Steel Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Worship of the Emperor.

Aegis-5 is ranked 148,180th in the world and 4,649th in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.55 Crimes Per Hour.
