The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.574 billion Afi-Aftosians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,337 trillion Fishterous Correlations a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 190,220 Fishterous Correlations, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,043,092 per year while the poor average 17,665, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

Hunters often become the hunted, veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Afi-Aftos's national animal is the Vermicious Knid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dudeism.

Afi-Aftos is ranked 6,662nd in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Nudest, with 935.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
