The Queendom of Azodicarbonamide is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.62 billion Azodicarbonamideans 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, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.9%.

The very strong Azodicarbonamidean economy, worth 417 trillion betales a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 63,107 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 249,815 per year while the poor average 10,779, a ratio of 23.2 to 1.

Elections have been outlawed, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and there are no minimum wage laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Azodicarbonamide's national animal is the deer.

Azodicarbonamide is ranked 159,055th in the world and 214th in Hsiao Han for Most Average, scoring 20.59 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
