The Technocracy States of Azzarel is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Shepherd with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.311 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, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Azza economy, worth a remarkable 1,162 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 269,587 credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 884,087 per year while the poor average 61,696, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor, expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, the government decides its policies by observing the flight of birds, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. 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 9,832nd in the world and 559th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 86.5 on the Human Development Index.
