The Democratic People's Republic of NewColo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Colo with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 2.104 billion NewColoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Neighborhood. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient NewColoan economy, worth 310 trillion Colos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 147,488 Colos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", and you can represent some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is Us.

NewColo is ranked 175,571st in the world and 5,509th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4.73 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
