The Military Republic of Cote Azure is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President John Eisenhower with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.805 billion Azurans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harvest. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cote Azurean economy, worth 814 trillion Sigmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 214,000 Sigmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 773,873 per year while the poor average 42,232, a ratio of 18.3 to 1.

Almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, billions of Sigmas are being poured into a space program, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. 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 3,625th in the world and 10th in Wintreath for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 8,914.32 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
