The Empire of The Industrial States of Columbia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Norton with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The cheerful, devout population of 11.607 billion Columbians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delphia. The average income tax rate is 80.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Columbian economy, worth a remarkable 1,376 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,593 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Fruit pickers with degrees in Red Tailed Hawk psychology are a common sight, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, and the arms industry is strictly regulated. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Industrial States of Columbia's national animal is the Red Tailed Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ahlism.

The Industrial States of Columbia is ranked 7,897th in the world and 9th in Cobalt Network for Most Developed, scoring 88.97 on the Human Development Index.
