The Commonwealth of Aoz is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 3.945 billion Aozians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Aozian economy, worth 700 trillion Limas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,559 Limas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, citizens volunteer for tax audits to avoid the 80-page Practical Assessment Survey Tool On Religions, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Lima battlesuits, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aoz's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aoz is ranked 4,058th in the world and 129th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 138.83 quips per hour.
