The Senate and the People of The United States of Columbia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Oliver Lockwood with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.714 billion Americans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming American economy, worth 686 trillion USC Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,090 USC Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Americans any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United States of Columbia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Federal Cult.

The United States of Columbia is ranked 144,316th in the world and 196th in New Western Empire for Most Pro-Market, scoring 31.33 on the Rand Index.
