The Commonwealth of Aggro is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Manzil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.158 billion Aggroans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aggropolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aggroan economy, worth a remarkable 3,249 trillion Silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 319,922 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, the new intercity submarine SSN Black Dog Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers, and Aggroans incessantly needle their doctors for relief. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aggro's national animal is the Black Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mindfulness.

Aggro is ranked 210,463rd in the world and 6,039th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Drug Use, scoring 14.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
