Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Technocratic Socialist Union of Azurius is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Azurian Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and digital currency. The hard-working, democratic population of 6.052 billion Azurians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Azuria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Azurian economy, worth a remarkable 2,612 trillion Azols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 431,725 Azols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azurius's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Humanism.

Azurius is ranked 28,470th in the world and 471st in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 6.05 billion Capita.
