The People's Republic of Changolandia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joćo Gordo with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.101 billion Changolandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quanton. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The thriving Changolandian economy, worth 302 trillion Changoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 97,565 Changoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 174,386th in the world and 7,001st in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.29 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
