The Democratic Republic of Juche States is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Gim Jung Oun with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.424 billion Juche Statesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Juchia. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Juche Statesian economy, worth 574 trillion Kims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 89,445 Kims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", childish pranks are no laughing matter, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, and minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Juche States's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gim Jung Oun.

Juche States is ranked 166,164th in the world and 5,455th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 43.81 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
