The United States of Columbia-Jefferson is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ronald Reagan with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.295 billion Jeffersonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richmond. Income tax is unheard of.

The thriving Jeffersonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,170 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 160,456 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 695,540 per year while the poor average 23,505, a ratio of 29.6 to 1.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, religious terrorism is considered to be an Act of God by insurance companies, and blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Columbia-Jefferson's national animal is the Virginia opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Columbia-Jefferson is ranked 7,643rd in the world and 53rd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 7 Valid Endorsements.
