The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.931 billion Azzas are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth a remarkable 1,860 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 313,687 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,359,763 per year while the poor average 45,951, a ratio of 29.6 to 1.

The Shepherd has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, and standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azzarel's national animal is the Meerkat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Azzarel is ranked 16,716th in the world and 403rd in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 1,002.78801793748 Days.
