The Empire of Azura Palatina is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aurelius Honorius with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 3.651 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 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Azuran economy, worth 547 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, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 150,076 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, and the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans. 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.
