The Insomniac Orphan Obliterator of Azureano is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Vanessa Ludwig with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.636 billion Azucchis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zentral Freiburg im Breisgau. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azureanoan economy, worth 298 trillion Lutires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 113,390 Lutires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. 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 206,103rd in the world and 7,252nd in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.48 Obesity Rate.
