The Empire of Azura Palatina is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Aurelius Honorius with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 2.74 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palatine. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Azuran economy, worth 416 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 152,028 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, former polygamists always seem to have a huge number of visiting cousins, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, and minstrels carrying coconut shells provide sound effects wherever their nobles wander. 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.
