The Nine in the Afternoon of Azizalai is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 2.419 billion Azizalaians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 32.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Azizalaian economy, worth 155 trillion gold bars 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 64,078 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, foreign lack of enthusiasm for Azizalaian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azizalai's national animal is the monster.
