Swedish term or phrase: perifer koloni

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.

What is the "peripheral colony" please? One of industrial towns and its workers??? or something else?
