Azerbaijan is a country on the Caspian Sea.
Azerbaijan is about oil and nothing but. Oil, oil and more oil. It was originally a place to be avoided, as oil leaking from the ground got all over everything. One could not dig a hole or poke a stick in the ground without hitting oil or oil fractions like naptha. Then during a lightning storm, all the little puddles of oil caught fire. This made for some amazing views and made roasting marshmallows real easy. But since you had to always be dancing around trying not to catch fire or trying to put out a fire on yourself, it was a little obnoxious.
