The Kingdom of Columbia AU is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King John III with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.761 billion Columbians 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 tiny government prioritizes Law & Order, with Spirituality, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milwaukee. The average income tax rate is 7.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Columbian economy, worth 237 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 Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 85,891 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, and a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Columbia AU's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Columbia AU is ranked 30,858th in the world and 3rd in Alternate Earth for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,172.4 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
