The United Federation of Changjo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lee Jaejoon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 12.416 billion Changjoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaeho. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Changjoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,025 trillion Chunjis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 163,134 Chunjis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, the fate of the world literally rests on Lee Jaejoon's fingers, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Changjo's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Seokism.

Changjo is ranked 7,690th in the world and 380th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 125 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
