The Imperial State of Azorztka is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Most Glorious Supreme Commander Arkeus with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.87 billion Azorztkans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Administration and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkenstadt. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Azorztkan economy, worth a remarkable 1,398 trillion zets a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,665 zets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Few that venture into government archives are ever seen again, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", citizens pray for sunshine so that they can use illicit sundials for timekeeping, and farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azorztka's national animal is the night raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Azorztka is ranked 33,584th in the world and 1,882nd in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,824.75 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
