The Unified Nation States of Arc Aegis is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Neo Terra with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 8.276 billion Arc Aegisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arean. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aegis economy, worth a remarkable 1,407 trillion Arcs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,047 Arcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, recognizing the Aegis flag qualifies you for citizenship, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arc Aegis's national animal is the Thunder Pheonix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arc Aegis is ranked 144,053rd in the world and 5,348th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 31.44 on the Rand Index.
