The Poinsettia Confederacy of Azura is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Praetor BŠlfire I Venator with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.88 billion Azurans 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 government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass -- concentrates mainly on Defence, although Religion & Spirituality and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legnica. The average income tax rate is 35%. A robust private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Soda Sales and Information Technology.
Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, it is widely believed that the first citizen of Azura was called 'Wild-eyed Daddy-O', the government has returned all business to private ownership, and the nation has a strict 'no marauding undead' law (Azura has found 1 easter egg). Crime is a serious problem. Azura's national animal is the Azur Lion, its national religion is BŠlfir´sm, and its currency is the Astichan.
