The Principality of Azziraphalia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 540 million Azziraphalians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Azziraphalian economy, worth 22.0 trillion denariis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,830 denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, there's more hugging than talking in most talk shows, and airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azziraphalia's national animal is the chimera, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Azziraphalia is ranked 166,468th in the world and 1,171st in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -116.2 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
