The Dictatorship of Colostanium is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 965 million Colostaniumians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedomtown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.9%.

The Colostaniumian economy, worth 41.2 trillion Foldas a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,699 Foldas, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Folda charge on their phone bill, boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television, and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Colostanium's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Colostanium is ranked 141,505th in the world and 321st in Thaecia for Highest Average Incomes, with 42,699.28 Standard Monetary Units.
