The Holy Empire of New United States of Columbia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord-Protector Foley with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, enslaved workforce, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 9.307 billion Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, 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 Washington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.4%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 1,973 trillion Silver Eagles a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 212,059 Silver Eagles, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts, the state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers, and the best fashion comes straight to the high street from sweatshops all across the globe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. New United States of Columbia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Founders Cult.

New United States of Columbia is ranked 74,297th in the world and 2,057th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,786.84 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
