The Unitary Provinces of Colfes is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Johannes Hayato with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.226 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ataro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Colfen economy, worth 385 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 173,102 Deltas, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation, former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. 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 17,059th in the world and 680th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 32.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
