The People's Community of Azkachena is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 715 million Azkachis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Azka. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Azkacheni economy, worth 68.5 trillion Azkars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 95,810 Azkars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azkachena's national animal is the colossal squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Azkachena is ranked 116,569th in the world and 68th in The Social Liberal Union for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 105,713 Standard Monetary Units.
