The Technocratic Union of Azurius is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Deng-Flow Ping with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.875 billion Azurians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business 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 3,371 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 428,074 Azols, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,556,423 per year while the poor average 83,769, a ratio of 18.6 to 1.

The bum of Deng-Flow Ping has been voted the most recognisable in Azurius, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Neo Azuria Times is sold out, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago. 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 31,159th in the world and 1,446th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,175.03 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
