The Insomniac Orphan Obliterator of Azureano is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Empress Vanessa Ludwig with an iron fist, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.479 billion Azucchis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zentral Freiburg im Breisgau. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azureanoan economy, worth 277 trillion Lutires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,105 Lutires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People say chess victor Empress Vanessa Ludwig can kill you with mind-bullets, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azureano's national animal is the Azurean Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Azureano is ranked 6,468th in the world and 135th in The East Pacific for Most Armed, with 10.61 Weapons Per Person.
