The Community of Junitaki-cho is a huge, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 352 million Junitaki love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bifuka. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Junitaki economy, worth 13.7 trillion wools a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 38,826 wools, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, and escalators are avoided at all costs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Junitaki-cho's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Junitaki-cho is ranked 30,713th in the world and 19th in Refugia for Most Politically Free, scoring 79.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
