The Constitutional dictatorship of Junkielien is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ernst Bobby with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.536 billion Junkielieniana have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mile highclub. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Junkielienian economy, worth a remarkable 1,509 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 272,721 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, gambling is outlawed, and the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper. 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 236,035th in the world and 693rd in Europeia for Fattest Citizens, with 4.08 Obesity Rate.
