The Military Republic of Cote Azure is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Jeffrey Dates with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, strictly enforced bedtime, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.186 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azure. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cote Azurean economy, worth 891 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 212,902 Sigmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, where there's smoke there's the Cote Azure Forestry Department, and government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that President Jeffrey Dates is not a crook. 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 17,823rd in the world and 17th in Wintreath for Fattest Citizens, with 15.23 Obesity Rate.
