The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.093 billion Azzas are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 72.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth 767 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 248,040 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Azza satellites can detect it, burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azzarel's national animal is the Meerkat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Azzarel is ranked 112,205th in the world and 5,616th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 239.2 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
