Gran Colombia used its large reserve of natural resources to build a strong economy and immediately begun the journey to industrialization. Gran Colombia went on to became a vibrant and prosperous nation by the 1860's.
Gran Colombia competed intensely with the US over Cuba and eventually acquired it in the 1890's. Cuba immediately became a valuable asset to Gran Colombia and an important state because of its variety of cash crops.
The economic troubles experienced by the Netherlands during the 1930's led to the Dutch West Indies being purchased by the RGCC in 1936 for $6 million.
