The Empire of Azura Palatina is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aurelius Honorius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.194 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, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palatine. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Azuran economy, worth 317 trillion Aureuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,638 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Gambling addicts regularly lose their families' nest eggs at Native Azuran casinos, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the Azuran Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments. 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.
