The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.73 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 81.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth a remarkable 2,464 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 318,851 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and expectant parents extensively research old court records before naming their child. 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 122,457th in the world and 4,430th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.47 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
