The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, lack of airports, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.607 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, with Administration and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 79.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,489 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, highly 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 impressive 193,985 Fishterous Correlations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, the nation has dismantled its entire WMD arsenal, the government is expanding hungrily in its conquest of bread, and real chickens replace rooster weather vanes on inner-city rooftop gardens. 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 15,781st in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 83,213.39 Standard Monetary Units.
