Azura Palatina

Population1.846 billion

LeaderAurelius Honorius
FaithThe Lady


The Empire of Azura Palatina is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aurelius Honorius with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.846 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 Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palatine. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azuran economy, worth 271 trillion Aureuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,954 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is The Lady.

Azura Palatina is ranked 107,901st in the world and 5,436th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 44.21 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
