The Great Empire of North Azarath is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gabriel I of St Paul with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.974 billion North Azarathians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trigon City. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North Azarathian economy, worth 741 trillion Azarathian Ravens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 249,286 Azarathian Ravens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Azarath's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catolicism.

North Azarath is ranked 60,387th in the world and 17th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Extreme, scoring 25.25 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
