The Insomniac Orphan Obliterator of Azureano is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Vanessa Ludwig with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.188 billion Azucchis 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zentral Freiburg im Breisgau. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azureanoan economy, worth 246 trillion Lutires a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,833 Lutires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azureano's national animal is the Azurean Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Azureano is ranked 170,038th in the world and 3,077th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 74.2 billion Standard Monetary Units.
