The Holy Empire of Azazakera is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, digital currency, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.164 billion Azazakerans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Temple. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Azazakeran economy, worth 117 trillion Spoons a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 101,227 Spoons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 838,133 per year while the poor average 2,484, a ratio of 337 to 1.

Newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", and open-heart surgery is taught in seminaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Azazakera's national animal is the Harpy Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Azazakera is ranked 37,864th in the world and 41st in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 4,557.61 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
