The Township of Junitaki-cho is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.581 billion Junitaki are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bifuka. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Junitaki economy, worth 283 trillion wools a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 79,267 wools, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, the new intercity submarine SSN Sheep Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers, and asking 'a penny for your thoughts?' draws law enforcement response. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 257,906th in the world and 384th in Refugia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.14 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
