The Empire of Aegis-5 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Harrower with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.14 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, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 9,065 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 an amazing 499,729 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution. 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 2,885th in the world and 63rd in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 31,598 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
