The Allied Republic of Azazria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Chancellor with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.298 billion Azazrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bürgstadt. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Azazrian economy, worth 518 trillion Istroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 70,993 Istroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, political detractors refer to High Chancellor as 'that Bigtopian puppet', and every citizen is allowed exactly fifteen minutes of fame. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azazria's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Azazria is ranked 46,908th in the world and 2nd in Istra for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 59.41 Effective Tax Rate.
