The Insomniac Orphan Obliterator of Azureano is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Empress Vanessa Ludwig with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.485 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 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azureanoan economy, worth 279 trillion Lutires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,657 Lutires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks. 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 190,725th in the world and 6,118th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 47.8 Whatever.
