Historically, the nations that formed Gran Colombia were originally part of the Spanish viceroyalties of New Spain and New Grenada.

The nations remained independent until 1957, when the military junta that governed Colombia was overthrown in the 1957 Colombian Coup, and the nation of Gran Colombia was formed. Unification with Panama and Ecuador occured in 1962, and the United States handed the Panama Canal Zone over to Colombia in 1979.
Gran Colombia has achieved an important modernization and general improvement of political, cultural, and social life. However, longlasting issues such as the drug cartels in the rural regions of the Colombia region, much of the population in rural areas, and the lack of a proper education system continues to plauge the country.
In 1957, the military junta that ruled the Republic of Colombia was overthrown by a group of democratic resitance fighters, and established Gran Colombia. The overthrow was called the 1957 Colombian Coup, and was supported by the United States and its allies, but was denounced by the Soviet Union, Cuba, and the Warsaw Pact.
The Interim Government put fourth its promises, and brought a new round of fair elections of the people of Colombia. The people of Colombia and the government elected Ricardo Martinelli as the 1st President of Gran Colombia. Martinelli brought changes to Gran Colombia, and help bring Ecuador and Panama into Gran Colombia. In 1962, the Central American Reunification Treaty was signed by the three dignitaries of Colombia, Panama, and Ecuador.
In 1979, the Panama Canal Zone and more importantly - the Panama Canal - was seceded to Gran Colombia after the successful negotiations between United States President Jimmy Carter and President Julio Torrijos. Gran Colombia continued to slowly improve the social life of the people and modernize the country, but continues to fight the Drug War in the country. Since the aquisition of the Panama Canal, the United States and Colombia began to focus on the drug cartels, which was later supported by the Imperialist States.
