The Smooth Groove of Blue Notes VII is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.004 billion Blue Notes are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miles Davis Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 15.8%.

The all-consuming Jazzed economy, worth 99.0 trillion Coltranes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 98,607 Coltranes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Blue Notes VII's national animal is the Thelonious Monkfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Blue Notes VII is ranked 106,996th in the world and 126th in Last Flight for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
