Currently led by Juan Manuel Santos, the state is a stable pro-American democracy and usually faces tensions with its neighbors because of this. The ongoing conflict with FARC has greatly diminished thanks to strong military response from the government of Santos' predecessor, Álvaro Uribe, and FARC has gone from being an irregular army to little more than a criminal threat. Unfortunately, many of those in FARC take cover in neighboring countries with "affinity" to its "ideology" (in theory communism, but in RealLife they just kidnap people and hold them for ransom like any other criminal group).

It's usually painted like a [[CrapsackWorld hellhole wallowing in drugs and bloodshed]], which couldn't be farther from the truth. Since 2005 the country has progressively gotten better, so much ''The Economist'' has written over it in a couple of "Gotten Better countries". The drugs trade is still active, though it's diminishing and more and more of the trade is moving to Mexico due in part to government crackdowns.
