The Incorporated States of Azzarel is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 728 million 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth 133 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 183,124 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Azzarel, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', and the nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one. 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 7,601st in the world and 263rd in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 7,276.33 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
