The People's Republic of Changolandia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joćo Gordo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.148 billion Changolandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quanton. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Changolandian economy, worth 43.0 trillion Changoes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,428 Changoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Changolandia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Changolandia is ranked 63,019th in the world and 1,941st in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 55.23 on the Human Development Index.
