The Technocratic Union of Azurius is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Azurian Council with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.805 billion Azurians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 4,197 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, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 476,684 Azols, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, and foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights. 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 158,732nd in the world and 58th in The Erviadus Galaxy for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.17 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
