Socialist Columbia

Population7.58 billion

CapitalDouglass City
LeaderPresident Godfrey


The Commonwealth of Socialist Columbia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Godfrey with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.58 billion Commonwealthers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Douglass City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Columbian economy, worth a remarkable 1,449 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 191,179 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and extreme political groups are outlawed. Crime is totally unknown. Socialist Columbia's national animal is the cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist Columbia is ranked 12,309th in the world and 35th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Economic Output, with 1,449 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
