The Shizhu Caliphate of Aglrinia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Prophet Kudu with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.598 billion Aglrinese 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kazahkbad. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aglrinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,413 trillion Beijis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 158,042 Beijis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, government statistics suggest 115% of the population love The Prophet Kudu, fat-shaming is now public policy, and pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aglrinia's national animal is the Maned Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Aglrinia is ranked 82,816th in the world and 2nd in Auratus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 71.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
