The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.955 billion Azzas are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 81.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth a remarkable 2,508 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 315,306 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP, people are often woken up by rubbish music, the country is littered with broken homes, and promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service. 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 223,892nd in the world and 8,539th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 10.57 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
