The United States of Colendia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by General Allnames with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.025 billion Colendians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Eden. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Colendian economy, worth 591 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,500 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Colendia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Colendia is ranked 135,848th in the world and 122nd in The United Federations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 35.22 on the Rand Index.
