The Constitutional dictatorship of Junkielien is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ernst Bobby with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.918 billion Junkielieniana are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mile highclub. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Junkielienian economy, worth a remarkable 1,075 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 274,530 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, and billions of guilders are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Junkielien's national animal is the Fenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sarcasm.

Junkielien is ranked 197,227th in the world and 949th in Europeia for Fattest Citizens, with 6.04 Obesity Rate.
