Gran Colombia existed from 1819 to 1831, which means that it has just ceased to exist when the game begins. The player can however form the nation again with the decision Form Gran Colombia.
On its height Gran Colombia included modern day Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Panama and northern Peru and Northest Brazil. It can be formed by the following South American nations: Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Venezuela. One must rise to the status Great Power and add the others to their Sphere of Influence or conquer them outright.
As a country in the Americas Gran Colombia has initially a very low population compared to its size, but a significant boost to immigration. In order to attract even more immigrants one have to make Gran Colombia more democratic and enact all social reforms.
As Gran Colombia has cores in Panama, it is easy to build The Panama Canal for extra prestige.
Forming Gran Colombia
More easily, you can release Gran Colombia from Colombia, choose play as and go the militaristic way. If you choose to release it you will have cores in Ecuador, Venezuela, Panama and Colombia. This will mean the free "restore order" casus belli and easy expansion. The nation, which one chooses to release Gran Colombia from, will keep its capital as an independent nation. Colombia is the most powerful nation, and is thus the best choice to release Gran Colombia from.
Production and industry
Colombias main export will be coffee and which are good cash crops, but will not help industry. There is also a bit of fruit in Panama as well as grain in Colombia. Ecuador produces mainly fruit as well. So a glass factory and a winery and liquor distillery are good choices for industry. Problem is getting access to coal.
