The Dictatorship of Azanco is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Hans-Joachim Bachmann with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.2 billion Azancoans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of azanco federal district. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Azancoan economy, worth 103 trillion Ancoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,974 Ancoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azanco's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Azanco is ranked 47,838th in the world and 23rd in Novo Brasil for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,865.1 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
