The Unitary Provinces of Colfes is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Johannes Hayato with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.498 billion Colfesians 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 juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ataro. The average income tax rate is 20.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Colfen economy, worth 430 trillion Deltas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,247 Deltas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Navy has outraged the international community by sinking a boatload of refugees to prevent them reaching the shore, tourists visit Colfes to mass-moon Colfen politicians, oxygen is commonly known as 'breathinium', and it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Colfes's national animal is the Honeybee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Helionism.

Colfes is ranked 41,461st in the world and 1,359th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 237,922 Standard Monetary Units.
