The Anarcho-Capitalist Ogre Fans of Whereisthatistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by ADemocraticallyElectedDictator with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 28.156 billion Whereisthatistanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rollercoaster Land and Gun Range. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Whereisthatistanian economy, worth an astonishing 12,851 trillion Kalashnikovs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 456,423 Kalashnikovs, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

On-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Whereisthatistan's national animal is the Opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Whereisthatistan is ranked 204th in the world and 7th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 37,200.99 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
