The Republic of The Islands of Colwell is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Colwell with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.209 billion Colwellians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colville. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Colwellian economy, worth a remarkable 1,444 trillion Colwellian dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,290 Colwellian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When their backs are against the walls Colwellians look out for gay men, The Islands of Colwell is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, Prime Minister Colwell claims to be the epitome of family values, and any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Islands of Colwell's national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Islands of Colwell is ranked 181,878th in the world and 4,068th in Lazarus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -6 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
