The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 39.319 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 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 Loompaland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 8,000 trillion Fishterous Correlations a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 203,477 Fishterous Correlations, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague, young schoolchildren pledge allegiance to One Nation Under Bum Indivisible By Poo, hospitals scramble for new disinfectants following a ban on rubbing alcohol, and former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor. 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 31,192nd in the world and 2nd in Fredonia for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 5.52 Bank.
