The United Federation of Changjo is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Isak Valtersen with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, aversion to nipples, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cynical population of 15.606 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 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Changjoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,701 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 173,133 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Changjo's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, eminent domain has been abolished, pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. 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 832nd in the world and 46th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 161.26 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
