The Federated Union of Democratic Colonies is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Secretary General Morgan Leigh with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful population of 35.564 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 7,837 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 220,377 DC Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. 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 75,397th in the world and 8th in Greater Prussia for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 69.09 Workforce Participation Rate.
