The Federated Union of Democratic Colonies is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Secretary General Thomas Mills with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 39.156 billion Colonials 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viconia. The average income tax rate is 30.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Colonial economy, worth a remarkable 8,637 trillion DC Dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 220,583 DC Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, and janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for. Crime is totally unknown. Democratic Colonies's national animal is the Amber Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Democratic Colonies is ranked 144,706th in the world and 6th in Greater Prussia for Most Politically Free, scoring 55.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
