The Vanguard State of Al-Aezam is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ra'īs Kourosh Rasul with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory vegetarianism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 8.962 billion Al-Aezamis 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Markaz. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Al-Aezami economy, worth a remarkable 2,757 trillion Al-Aezami Dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 307,694 Al-Aezami Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lavish state dinners in Markaz are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, the number of children one can have is restricted by law, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, and frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Al-Aezam's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Al-Aezam is ranked 157,079th in the world and 162nd in The Internationale for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,028.69 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
