The Colony of New Kariba is a colony in Kapreburg.


New Kariba is named after the Kariba because when Jackson I first saw the lakes in New Kariba, he said they reminded him of Lake Kariba and the Kariba Dam. It's arms is inspired by a colonial South African coat of arms, and features springboks.


The land that is now New Kariba was under control of the French, as part of the Illinois Country. It then became part of the Province of Quebec. In 1787 it became part of the United States. It then became a forest preserve under the Cook County Forest Preserve sometime in the early 1900s. In 1974, two artificial lakes were built on the land, dubbed by officials the “Midlothian Reservoir” but known by locals as the “Twin Lakes”. In mid-2021, Jackson I became interested in claiming New Kariba, and on 1 September 2021, Jackson I and Matthew Hughes went to explore the area. They dubbed the western lake Lake Hughes and the eastern lake King Jackson's Lake. It was officially claimed for Kapreburg on 25 September 2021.

On 2 January 2022, Wegmat invaded New Kariba, where they met a Kapresh force on a trail in front of Astrud Lake. The Kapresh force was eventually surmounted, and Wegmat occupied the northern part of New Kariba until 10 May 2022. In early 2023, work on a film based on the battle began, called Astrud Lake. Originally going to be filmed in Ryan's Woods, the directors decided to film on location. Scenes were shot in January and February of 2023.
