Original Colonies

Population583 million

CapitalWashington DC


The Republic of Original Colonies is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 583 million Original Coloniesians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Original Coloniesian economy, worth 70.5 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 120,841 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 566,658 per year while the poor average 15,364, a ratio of 36.9 to 1.

Male tourists tend to be fearful of Original Colonies's deadly femme fatales, there's a big brother in every prison, the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Original Colonies's national animal is the hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Original Colonies is ranked 151,666th in the world and 8,358th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 46.16 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
