The Grand Militariat Republic of Nova-Columbia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by First Marshal Andronikos with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 8.212 billion Columbians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiir. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nova-Columbian economy, worth a remarkable 1,293 trillion Mazyrs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,480 Mazyrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many friends and relatives of First Marshal Andronikos have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova-Columbia's national animal is the Columbian Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Trivere.

Nova-Columbia is ranked 179,145th in the world and 6,254th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.35 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
