The Democratic People's Republic of NewColo is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 520 million NewColoans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Neighborhood. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient NewColoan economy, worth 58.2 trillion Colos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 111,965 Colos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NewColo's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

NewColo is ranked 176,602nd in the world and 5,087th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 7.63 Obesity Rate.
