The Glorious People's Republic of Aggro is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Jibbo Manzil Zoon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, ban on automobiles, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.528 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 2,383 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 316,665 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven. 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 Shining Path.

Aggro is ranked 413th in the world and 14th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 15,202.6 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
