The Democratic Republic of Azaltan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Eric Tims with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 5.933 billion Azaltai 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Champala. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azaltanian economy, worth 881 trillion Akrons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,598 Akrons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All the playground's a stage for Azaltanian schoolchildren, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azaltan's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Azaltan is ranked 8,616th in the world and 7th in United Nations UN for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 12,486.51 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
