The Federated Union of Democratic Colonies is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Secretary General Morgan Leigh with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful population of 35.377 billion Colonials are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viconia. The average income tax rate is 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Colonial economy, worth a remarkable 7,777 trillion DC Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 219,857 DC Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Imitation is the sincerest form of felony, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain. Crime is totally unknown. Democratic Colonies's national animal is the Amber Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Democratic Colonies is ranked 80,250th in the world and 7th in Greater Prussia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,070.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
