Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Aegis-5 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Harrower with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.701 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 and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. 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 5,028 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 469,942 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, citizens who don't meet government health standards are whisked away never to be seen again, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Aegisian Space Agency, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. 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 106,631st in the world and 3,445th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 24.43 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
