The United Republic of Cote Azure is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Jeffrey Dates with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.916 billion Azurans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azure. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azuran economy, worth a remarkable 1,552 trillion Sigmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 224,434 Sigmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Luxury condos have arisen from the ashes of demolished houses of worship, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, maritime signalling has become tedious since only the Azuran flag can be displayed, and foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather. 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 44,045th in the world and 112th in Wintreath for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 57.18 Effective Tax Rate.
