The Technocratic Union of Azurius is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Deng-Flow Ping with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.948 billion Azurians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small government prioritizes Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Azuria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Azurian economy, worth a remarkable 2,978 trillion Azols a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 428,750 Azols, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,578,902 per year while the poor average 82,242, a ratio of 19.2 to 1.

Public intoxication has decreased ever since fraternities were banned, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism. 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 702nd in the world and 32nd in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 335 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
