The Senate and the People of The United States of Columbia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Consul Oliver Lockwood with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.253 billion Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington. The average income tax rate is 46.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming American economy, worth 386 trillion USC Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,769 USC Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, and the children of The United States of Columbia are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United States of Columbia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Federal Cult.

The United States of Columbia is ranked 135,338th in the world and 185th in New Western Atlantic for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.01 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
