The Holy Empire of Azbadar is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Azbadar De La Cruz with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.022 billion 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 large, 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 73.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Azbadarian economy, worth 409 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,391 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. 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 Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Holy Roman Catholic Church.

Azbadar is ranked 4,682nd in the world and 12th in Texas for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,543.86 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
