It took me a few days to understand colony enough that I could answer clarifying questions, it took even longer to ask useful questions about design details. By contrast it only takes a few seconds to come up with a different name. However before you state your name please sleep on it, and then ask if it is really better, or just different.

+1000.

My modest suggestion of std::population is better than colony because
it doesn't have the double meaning
of an ant colony vs. a colony in a land far far away. Otherwise they
mean exactly the same thing.
