The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.567 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Administration and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. The average income tax rate is 63.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,537 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 206,119 Fishterous Correlations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government-run newspapers insist that everything is fine, beat cops aren't named for the territory they patrol, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, and people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs. 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 168,246th in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -14.94 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
