The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 39.786 billion Afi-Aftosians 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, with Administration and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loompaland. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 8,214 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 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 206,455 Fishterous Correlations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Public urination is on the increase, only the brainiest citizens become academics, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 92nd in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 56,750.51 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
