The Republic of Azevedocity is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 425 million Azevedocityians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urca. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Azevedocityian economy, worth 34.3 trillion Rubros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 80,721 Rubros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A government program is underway to revitalize Azevedocity's beaches, frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines, the endangered saltwater humpback Gato is only seen in captivity programs, and passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azevedocity's national animal is the Gato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Azevedocity is ranked 93,729th in the world and 1st in Terras geladas for Smartest Citizens, with 33.54 quips per hour.
