The Technocratic Union of Azurius is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Deng-Flow Ping with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.343 billion Azurians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Azuria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Azurian economy, worth a remarkable 3,188 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 434,277 Azols, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,614,065 per year while the poor average 82,102, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

The government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, and tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers. 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 637th in the world and 25th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 11,283.42 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
