The Confederate States of Southron Columbia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Zacharias DeWitt with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.246 billion Columbians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater District of Columbia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.3%.

The very strong Columbian economy, worth 440 trillion CS dragots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is 70,493 CS dragots, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 293,442 per year while the poor average 11,072, a ratio of 26.5 to 1.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, sleazy politicians exploit the Parliamentary Code of Conduct to purge their rivals, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Southron Columbia's national animal is the bald eagle and its national religion is the Faith of the Seven.

Southron Columbia is ranked 99,039th in the world and 8th in Skyreach for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,582.63 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
