The Anarcho-Capitalist Ogre Fans of Whereisthatistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by ADemocraticallyElectedDictator with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 25.209 billion Whereisthatistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 11,565 trillion Kalashnikovs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 458,783 Kalashnikovs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,502,086 per year while the poor average 105,248, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards, and the homeless more often beg for mercy than money. 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 142,721st in the world and 7,525th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.73 Kickbacks Per Hour.
