The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.45 billion Azzas are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 72.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth 853 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 247,489 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Azza satellites can detect it, burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork. 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 166,431st in the world and 9,050th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 30.63 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
