The Commonwealth of United Kolumbia is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.446 billion United Kolumbians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.1%.

The all-consuming United Kolumbian economy, worth 196 trillion Kolumbian dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 80,426 Kolumbian dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 284,684 per year while the poor average 16,405, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and the military struggles with recruitment. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. United Kolumbia's national animal is the Gharial.

United Kolumbia is ranked 123,000th in the world and 4,499th in Osiris for Healthiest Citizens, with 1 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
