CurrencyColwellian dollar

The Republic of The Islands of Colwell is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Colwell with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.352 billion Colwellians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colville. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Colwellian economy, worth 986 trillion Colwellian dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,105 Colwellian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Islands of Colwell's national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Islands of Colwell is ranked 2,898th in the world and 64th in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 31,501 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
