The Not Jolly Land of Aramanchovia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.693 billion Aramanchovians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arazmaz. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aramanchovian economy, worth an astonishing 12,444 trillion Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 745,521 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,505,484 per year while the poor average 13,187, a ratio of 493 to 1.

Books are considered luxuries only available to the incredibly wealthy, ten thousand Aramanchovian soldiers recently invaded a nation occupied by two senior citizens and a dachshund, the public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office, and the nation's historic treasures have been sold off to Maxtopia's "Museum of Aramanchovian Artifacts That They're Too Stupid to Appreciate". Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aramanchovia's national animal is the Fossil, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshipping The Leader.

Aramanchovia is ranked 43rd in the world and 1st in Rest In Peace for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 164,989.45 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
