How do I format my MySql table to avoid a "Incorrect string value" error?

I’m using Python 3.7, Django 2.0 and Mysql 5.7, all set up through docker containers. I’m trying to insert the following seed data into one of my tables …

- model: address.state
  pk: 14970
  fields:
    name: "Xocalu0131"
    code: XCI
    country: 266

This results in the MySql error, “Could not load address.State(pk=14750): (1366, “Incorrect string value: ‘xC4x81n’ for column ‘name’ at row 1″)”

web_1     |   File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/MySQLdb/cursors.py", line 209, in execute
web_1     |     res = self._query(query)
web_1     |   File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/MySQLdb/cursors.py", line 315, in _query
web_1     |     db.query(q)
web_1     |   File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/MySQLdb/connections.py", line 239, in query
web_1     |     _mysql.connection.query(self, query)
web_1     | django.db.utils.OperationalError: Problem installing fixture '/app/maps/fixtures/state_data.yaml': Could not load address.State(pk=14750): (1366, "Incorrect string value: 'xC4x81n' for column 'name' at row 1")

Below is my table description …

+---------------+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| address_state | CREATE TABLE `address_state` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,

  PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
  UNIQUE KEY `address_state_name_country_id_a46a5987_uniq` (`name`,`country_id`),

What can I do to format my table so that I can insert my value properly? The table was automatically generated through a migration based on the Django address module — https://github.com/furious-luke/django-address
