The Military Republic of Cote Azure is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Jeffrey Dates with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.085 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 prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, 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 53.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cote Azurean economy, worth a remarkable 1,101 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 notable. Average income is an amazing 216,555 Sigmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, Cote Azure's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. 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 182,830th in the world and 226th in Wintreath for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 34.19 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
