The Glorious People's Commune of Aggro is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman Ahmad Tariq Manzil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.271 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 2,957 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, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 318,982 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, and foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Aggropolis Black Dogs' triumph against long odds. 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 208,738th in the world and 5,242nd in the Rejected Realms for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.91 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
