The Technocratic Union of Azurius is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Deng-Flow Ping with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.268 billion Azurians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Azuria. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Azurian economy, worth a remarkable 3,703 trillion Azols a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 447,893 Azols, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,643,368 per year while the poor average 86,409, a ratio of 19.0 to 1.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Azurius's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Transhumanism.

Azurius is ranked 154,164th in the world and 9,239th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 70.25 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
