The Empire of Aegis-5 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Harrower with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.083 billion Aegisians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. 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 7,786 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 extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 484,128 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
The world still seems flat to some people in space, everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, on-duty Air Aegis-5 flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and the Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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.
