The Republic of Agorus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.658 billion Agorusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agorus City. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Agorusian economy, worth a remarkable 7,235 trillion Roubles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is a breathtaking 571,578 Roubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agorus's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is a major religion.

Agorus is ranked 339th in the world and 13th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 298,269.6 Standard Monetary Units.
