The Empire of Azura Palatina is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aurelius Honorius with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.3 billion Azurans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palatine. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Azuran economy, worth 166 trillion Aureuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,169 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Palatine to enjoy their national art, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azura Palatina's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
