The Military Republic of Cote Azure is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Jeffrey Dates with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.589 billion Azurans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azure. The average income tax rate is 53.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azuran economy, worth a remarkable 1,239 trillion Sigmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 221,831 Sigmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cote Azure's national animal is the Great Dane, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cote Azure is ranked 57,419th in the world and 100th in Wintreath for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,927.84 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
