The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.409 billion Azzas are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 77.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth a remarkable 1,989 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 310,488 credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Shepherd has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, and standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder. 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 214,899th in the world and 9,702nd in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -10.95 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
