The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.538 billion Azzas are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth a remarkable 2,389 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 316,961 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, clergy who start talking about politics are forced to take a holy vow of silence, political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azzarel's national animal is the Meerkat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Azzarel is ranked 232,678th in the world and 8,936th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 24.3 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
