Free Azell

Population5.029 billion

LeaderKing Jeremy


The Constitutional Monarchy of Free Azell is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Jeremy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 5.029 billion Free Azellians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albany. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Free Azellian economy, worth 369 trillion rupees a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,540 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, the new Swan Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, police are trained in using their steel-capped boots as a tool of law enforcement, and clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Azell's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Free Azell is ranked 155,674th in the world and 291st in Conch Kingdom for Most Extreme, scoring 13.67 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
