The United Republic of Cote Azure is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Jeffrey Dates with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.014 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azure. The average income tax rate is 51.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Azuran economy, worth a remarkable 1,340 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 222,857 Sigmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here". 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 34,251st in the world and 56th in Wintreath for Largest Populations, with 6.01 billion Capita.
