The Republic of A z a n i a is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Mandla Zakaza with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.933 billion Azanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azanian economy, worth 581 trillion Rand a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,879 Rand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A z a n i a's national animal is the Springbok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

A z a n i a is ranked 13,631st in the world and 5th in Greater Middle East for Highest Food Quality, scoring 135.99 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
