The United States of New-Columbus is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 169 million Columbians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 18.2%.

The American economy, worth 10.3 trillion US Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,091 US Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New-Columbus's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New-Columbus is ranked 40,444th in the world and 554th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 41.46 quips per hour.
