The Insomniac Orphan Obliterator of Azureano is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Vanessa Ludwig with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.465 billion Azucchis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zentral Freiburg im Breisgau. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azureanoan economy, worth 276 trillion Lutires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,028 Lutires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, people say chess victor Empress Vanessa Ludwig can kill you with mind-bullets, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azureano's national animal is the Azurean Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Azureano is ranked 14,209th in the world and 446th in The East Pacific for Best Weather, with 182 Meters Of Sunlight.
