The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Whoop Dee Whoop with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 46.029 billion Afi-Aftosians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loompaland. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth an astonishing 11,526 trillion Fishterous Correlations a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 250,414 Fishterous Correlations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Afi-Aftos's national animal is the Vermicious Knid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dudeism.

Afi-Aftos is ranked 60,886th in the world and 2nd in Fredonia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,890.87 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
