The largest, richest and most developed country in the Caucasus (a region east of Turkey, north of Iran and South of Russia that is partly in Europe and partly in Asia). It also happens to be one of the richest and most developed countries in the former Soviet union. It borders Iran to the south, Russia to the north, Armenia to the West, and Georgia to the north-west. Azerbaijan also has an autonomous exclave known as "Nakchivan" (separated from Azerbaijan proper by Armenia) that has a border with Turkey (and Iran and Armenia). Azerbaijan, when it was first created in 1918, was the first secular democracy in the Muslim world (predating even Turkey), not to mention the first Muslim country (and one of the first countries in the world) to give women the right to vote. Azerbaijan is still one of the few secular majority-Muslim countries.

Azerbaijan is a rapidly developing country with a rapidly growing economy (for most of the latter half of the 2000's, Azerbaijan's economy was one of the fastest-growing economies in the world), due to large oil and gas reserves.

The official language of Azerbaijan is Azeri (a language similar to Turkish), although most Azeris can also speak Russian and Turkish.

The predominant religion is Islam, although Azerbaijan is a secular country and most of it's population are not religious and do not practice (According to a poll in 2008, Azerbaijan's one of the least religious countries in the world).
Person: Where are you from?

Me: Azerbaijan.

Person: Oh, that's some Islamic shithole in the middle east, right? Don't they have Sharia law or something there?

Me: No, Azerbaijan's a secular country, and it's not in the middle east, it's in the Caucasus. There is no Sharia law in Azerbaijan whatsoever. And it's more developed than most former Soviet countries (not to mention most majority-Muslim countries).

A country that was built upon corruption and incompetence. Along with their Turkish buddies, they were greatly influenced of the Mongolian Empire, and shortly after its collapse, both Turks and Azerbaijanis decided to start an empire of their own. Turks formed "The Ottoman Empire" which stretched into the Balkans, Mid East and North Africa. Azerbaijanis, on the other hand, failed to sustain a big empire and settled in the Caucasus region of Europe. When the Turks stole land from the Armenians, Greeks, Bulgarians, Albanians, etc. all those countries fought for their independence. Turkey, then, decided to savagely attack the Armenians, in an attempt to get rid of them. Azerbaijan decided to follow a similar pattern, but this time it would be a war, rather genocide. In the war, Azerbaijan was brutally losing by a 7:1 casualty rate to the Armenians.

Modern day Azerbaijan consists of bribes, bootlegged DVDs and drugs. Along with the Turks, there are few Azerbaijanis who actually have Azerbaijani blood in them. The rest are mixed races, most likely from people indigenous to the Caucasus mountains. Economically and politically, the country is in a mess, and they're trying to obtain "Nagorno-Karabakh", which is an autonomous region that belongs to the Armenians. Along with Turkey, Azerbaijan is a country that should be spat on, and rather overlooked. They also think they're the best simply because they're Muslims in Europe (true story)...
Azerbaijan resident: we're the best man we're Muslims man
Man: No one is the best, retard.

A small country, north of Iran, south of Russia, to the west of the Caspian Sea, and to east of Turkey. Azerbaijan is a country that if developing fast to fit the modern world but still preserves its rich culture, traditions and history. The capital, Baku, has many plans to become more 'modern' in terms of high rises etc. Azerbaijan is a beautiful place to visit but like any country in the world has flaws. Politically, Azerbaijan is on a negotiation with Armenia to regain its land, 'Nagorno Karabakh' and has a part of its land, 'Nakhchivan' cut off form the mainland by Armenia in a war. Many biased definitions have heavily criticized Azerbaijan simply because they have nothing better to do. If you want the truth, simply google Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan is a republic, with a main president. Azerbaijan practices Islam, but also has many resident who practice Christianity. As mentioned before, Azerbaijan is culture and history rich, it also has many historical landmarks and sites, most relating to ancient ancient civilizations and early advanced living environments.

In the 1990's Azerbaijan supplied 50% of the worlds oil (not cooking oil) and is known for that. Azerbaijan also is famous for mud volcanoes, its many climates and geographical features which range from mountainous to humid.

Not in any way a good country. Since Azerbaijanis and Turks are one of the same, they share common traits, such as lying, denying, conniving and killing, and back to lying again. They follow the footsteps of their fellow Turkish buddies, meaning that not long after the Turks tried to exterminate the Armenians, Pontic Greeks and the Assyrians, the Azerbaijanis decided to follow a similar pattern by invading Armenian villages in Armenia, trying to annex the country. They eventually ran off like the dogs they are when the Nagorno-Karabakh war ensued back in '88.

Modern day Azerbaijan consists of more than bribes, drugs and bootlegged DVDs. Azerbaijan also consists of liars, mentally impaired government products and has absolutely no basic essence of life. They are, at the least, 50 years behind every other country in the world. Oh yeah, and they have no REAL culture, unless if you consider stealing land and constantly lying part of the culture.
Azerbaijan Turk: man fuck you Armenians man we're Aryan we're the perfect race.
Me: An Aryan isn't someone from the perfect race, you turd. Aryans are an old civilization in Iran. Aryan is also ancient spelling of the word "Iranian".
Azerbaijan Turk: ...yeah, uh still FUCK YOU man get a life!
Me: Really? "Get a life"? Go back to your little corner.
Azerbaijan Turk: but--
Azerbaijan Turk: yes, sire.

Country in the Middle East, former USSR, with crazy people whose entire economy is based on drugs, bribes and bootlegged DVDs. Azeri guys are skanks and will chase every blond girl they see. Azeri Girls are ok, i guess. Azeris, have beef with the Armos even though a lot of them (both races) live in Glendale, CA. The capital of Azerbaijan is called Baku, which is a pretty awesome name if you ask me...
