The Great Empire of North Azarath is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gabriel I of St Paul with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ritual sacrifices, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.711 billion North Azarathians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trigon City. The average income tax rate is 87.8%.

The frighteningly efficient North Azarathian economy, worth 717 trillion Azarathian Ravens a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 264,481 Azarathian Ravens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Azarath's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catolicism.

North Azarath is ranked 8,802nd in the world and 5th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,477.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
