The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.157 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 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 72.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth 527 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 244,684 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation excels at displacement, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities, and politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad. 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 147,900th in the world and 8,973rd in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 9.73 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
