The People's Republic of Changolandia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Joćo Gordo with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, lack of airports, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 7.174 billion Changolandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quanton. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Changolandian economy, worth 964 trillion Changoes 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 134,509 Changoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Joćo Gordo's questionably sane new coalition partners, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', and voting is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Changolandia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Changolandia is ranked 7,656th in the world and 220th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 105.14 quips per hour.
