The United Socialist Empire of Colonla is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Alexander I with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.589 billion Colonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khanbaliq. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Colonian economy, worth 768 trillion Krulers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 296,778 Krulers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,145,449 per year while the poor average 52,826, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

The nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, political activists are routinely executed, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, and Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Colonla's national animal is the Faloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Colonla is ranked 142,858th in the world and 6,674th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 503.85 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
