The Federal Republic of Armandlandia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Armando Juniór Patino IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.019 billion Armandlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciudad de Patinó. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Armandlandian economy, worth 125 trillion Armandlandian Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,138 Armandlandian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Harry Potter conventions are closely watched by the government for any signs of 'dueling', the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and the government funds large training centres to turn Grey Wolves into functioning members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Armandlandia's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Armandlandia is ranked 73,969th in the world and 2,220th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 136.06701708372 Days.
