Swedish term or phrase: de unga männens land

Full context this time (a bit long sorry)

Under 1870-talet registrerades den snabbaste ekonomiska tillväxten någonsin i USA, 6,8 procent per år. Mer uppseendeväckande än totalexpansionen var den ständiga produktivitetsökningen och standardstegringen. Den räckte för att snabbt göra en perifer koloni till ***”de unga männens land”***. Verkstadstekniken, med utbytbara delar och allt effektivare korta arbetsmoment, började utvecklas i USA där outbildade invandrare behövde snabbt skolas in.

I can only ask about one phrase but unofficially, the whole of the third sentence leaves me a bit confused.

Does this term refer to Sweden?

Separate question for "perifer koloni" coming.
