The United Federation of Changjo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Isak Valtersen with an iron fist, and renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 17.443 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 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 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Changjoan economy, worth a remarkable 3,037 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 174,149 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, overhead luggage compartments on planes sometimes conceal dimunitive intelligence officers, and children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants. 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 218,209th in the world and 8,590th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.34 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
