The Free Land of Cirrus Azaleum is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 316 million Azalaes 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anderwhell. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cirrus Azaleumian economy, worth 17.5 trillion Uniones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,395 Uniones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Military training in Cirrus Azaleum emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, and teenage girls in knee-length surfer shorts have become a cultural icon of Cirrus Azaleum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cirrus Azaleum's national animal is the Cirrusian Ice Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cirrus Azaleum is ranked 58,380th in the world and 144th in Thaecia for Most Politically Free, scoring 67.9 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
