The Realm of Azhaar is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prince Johannes with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 4.151 billion Azhaaris are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, although Healthcare, Education, and Social Policy are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soria. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Azhaarian economy, worth 72.9 trillion Lis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 17,573 Lis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are expected to carve their own toys, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, and dining out often involves Ermines on the plate no matter what you order. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azhaar's national animal is the Ermine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Aristotelic Church.

Azhaar is ranked 120,222nd in the world and 7th in Imperan League for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,335.7 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
