The United Federation of Changjo is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Isak Valtersen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 17.014 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 morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stoffels. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Changjoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,968 trillion Kroner a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,463 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. 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 Red Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheran.

Changjo is ranked 2,361st in the world and 113th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 18,560.77 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
