The Azdov Empire of Chesmo is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Wush't'po with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.114 billion Azdoves 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, 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 The Azdov Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Chesmian economy, worth 622 trillion Karwas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 121,713 Karwas, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chesmo's national animal is the Lune'k, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is I'awaism.

Chesmo is ranked 55,588th in the world and 2,795th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,662.84 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
