The Dictatorship of Ameriganastan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Darius Varheim with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.542 billion Ameriganis 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varheim City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ameriganastanian economy, worth an astonishing 12,076 trillion Varheims 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. 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 492,085 Varheims, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,763,598 per year while the poor average 98,471, a ratio of 17.9 to 1.

The government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, in a fit of passion Lord Darius Varheim has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ameriganastan's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Saraya.

Ameriganastan is ranked 178,357th in the world and 80th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Average, scoring 22.04 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
