The Soulless Horde of Azcoristan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Soulless Hivemind with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.582 billion soulless servants 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The ruins of Yokrasta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.0%.

The frighteningly efficient soulless economy, worth 661 trillion living souls a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,656 living souls, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 783,519 per year while the poor average 28,070, a ratio of 27.9 to 1.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, college athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, the world still seems flat to some people in space, and groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azcoristan's national animal is the wraith, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Thanotism.

Azcoristan is ranked 209,520th in the world and 223rd in Sonindia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -11.02 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
