The Queen's State of Aeget is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 24.819 billion Aegetians 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 tiny, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Aegetian economy, worth a remarkable 1,329 trillion betales a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,551 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, Aeget has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, the Governor has just been declared ruler of Aeget in an international press conference, and none has been named as Aeget's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force. Aeget's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Aeget is ranked 59,185th in the world and 2nd in Zambia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,356.9 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
