The Commonwealth of The Knights of Azorea is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Commune-Parliament with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 8.097 billion Azoreans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madeira. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Knights of Azorean economy, worth 380 trillion Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,933 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, and the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Knights of Azorea's national animal is the Canary Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Knights of Azorea is ranked 166,914th in the world and 5th in The Pristine Wilderness for Most Armed, with 0.26 Weapons Per Person.
