The Union of Aozhou is a massive, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.386 billion Aozhouese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid and Industry receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 26.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Aozhouese economy, worth 198 trillion Aozhouese dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 58,713 Aozhouese dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aozhou's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aozhou is ranked 180,516th in the world and 77th in Geopolity for Most Armed, with 0.24 Weapons Per Person.
