The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.389 billion Afi-Aftosians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Healthcare and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. The average income tax rate is 61.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,286 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 Gambling, 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 200,240 Fishterous Correlations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up, the government is known to care more about its buildings than its people, and poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment. 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 9th in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Most Stationary, with 5,697.66302016 Days.
