|Leader||President Maarija Ryginsdohter|
The Commonwealth of Azmara is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Maarija Ryginsdohter with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.559 billion Azmarans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aalmsted. The average income tax rate is 41.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Azmaran economy, worth 471 trillion Eucloes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,098 Eucloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, and royalist is the most offensive slur in the Azmaran language. Crime is totally unknown. Azmara's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
