The United States of Columbian Union is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Eagle population. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.356 billion Columbians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.
The very strong Columbian economy, worth 232 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 69,211 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Columbian Union's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
