The Republic of A z a n i a is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Kwezi Dlathu with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.453 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,034 trillion Rand a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,311 Rand, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, those who cut young children are told to cut it out, and the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 5,015th in the world and 2nd in Greater Middle East for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 17,881.91 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
