The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.335 billion Azzas are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 79.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth a remarkable 2,294 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 312,786 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Critical thinking is grounds for expulsion from university, lottery winners spend most of their money on security, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, and diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout. 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 20,204th in the world and 1,103rd in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,371.06 Tourists Per Hour.
