The United Federation of Changjo is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Isak Valtersen with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical population of 15.613 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, well-organized 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 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Changjoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,699 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 172,876 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. 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 200,107th in the world and 9,714th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 51.69 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
