The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.812 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, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth 421 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 232,628 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 931,906 per year while the poor average 38,964, a ratio of 23.9 to 1.
Hunters often become the hunted, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, and prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason. 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.
