The Borderlands of SovCol is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 295 million Colonial Citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 39.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped SovColian economy, worth 11.8 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 39,960 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SovCol's national animal is the Tawny Eagle.

SovCol is ranked 45,043rd in the world and 1,590th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 82.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
