The Democratic People's Republic of NewColo is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chairman Colo with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 2.003 billion NewColoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Neighborhood. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient NewColoan economy, worth 295 trillion Colos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 147,488 Colos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", and you can represent some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NewColo's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Us.

NewColo is ranked 10,385th in the world and 248th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Crime Rates, with 94 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
