The People's Republic of Azmeny is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Comrade Leader Yuri Korolev with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.115 billion Azmen comrades 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azmenabad. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Azmen economy, worth 878 trillion Azzes 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 213,512 Azzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, gift baskets often contain working nukes, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azmeny's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Communism.

Azmeny is ranked 3,043rd in the world and 1st in Beyond the Horizon for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.91 years.
