Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Azbadar is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Azbadar De La Cruz with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 902 million Azbadarians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slándáil. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Azbadarian economy, worth 109 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 121,187 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, and new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azbadar's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Azbadar is ranked 33,227th in the world and 70th in Texas for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 91.7 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
