The United Federation of Changjo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Isak Valtersen with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical population of 16.095 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 2,792 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 173,514 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, there's a hole in the heart of every Changjoan city, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. 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 4,990th in the world and 283rd in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 134,284.06 Standard Monetary Units.
