The Empire of Aegis-5 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Harrower with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.688 billion Aegisians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt, 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 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 8,926 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 rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 504,680 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, the government snoops on private internet connections, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, and bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 136,145th in the world and 5,100th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 35.22 on the Rand Index.
