The Free Land of Azeel is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 879 million Azeelians 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 large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Azeelian economy, worth 58.8 trillion Loops a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,900 Loops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tobacco industry has burnt out, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners. Crime is totally unknown. Azeel's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Azeel is ranked 43,191st in the world and 1,470th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 665.13 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
