The United Federation of Changjo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Isak Valtersen with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, aversion to nipples, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical population of 17.317 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 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Changjoan economy, worth a remarkable 3,008 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 173,710 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Private law firms are unheard of, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. 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 235,076th in the world and 8,908th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -362.96 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
