The Insomniac Orphan Obliterator of Azureano is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Vanessa Ludwig with an iron fist, and notable for its daily referendums, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.236 billion Azucchis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zentral Freiburg im Breisgau. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azureanoan economy, worth 254 trillion Lutires a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,913 Lutires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, the nation is wading into dangerous waters, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azureano's national animal is the Azurean Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Azureano is ranked 232,661st in the world and 8,137th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12.17 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
