Azzagrat

Population204 million

The Holy Empire of Azzagrat is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 204 million Azzagratians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Azzagratite economy, worth 14.2 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,488 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens try to ignore gruesome pictures of decaying teeth printed on their soda cans, education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, the Hanging Gardens account for half of Azzagrat City's water use, and 90% of active duty AAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azzagrat's national animal is the Serpent, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Azzagrat is ranked 94,998th in the world and 14th in Mirror World for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 857.89 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
