The Commonwealth of Columbia is a sovereign nation in North America. It is located on the west coast of the continent, bordered on the west by Pacific Ocean and Bowasia, bordered on the east by Canada across the Continental Divide, and bordered on the south by the Western Territory at the 49th Parallel.
Columbia was the first nation to secede from Canada, after concerns about logging rights in British Columbia and other environmental issues created enough concerns in the province to cause the Columbian National Party to form, recruiting members from the right and left wings of British Columbian politics.
Columbia is a unitary state governed as a parliamentary democracy with a semi-presidential system in place for the executive branch. Columbia has a growing economy, which depends mainly on lumber, Hemp, and technology exports. However, its position on the Pacific Coast allows for easy trade networks, while Vancouver has a large port, capable of massive trade volumes.
Columbia is a developed nation, with its primary focuses being Education, Healthcare, and Environmentalism, respectively. The nation has extensive protections on human rights and dignity, and an economic model based on Nordic Socialism. It ranks as one of the most socially progressive nations in the world, with its inclusion of LGBT citizens in their society.
