The Anarcho-Capitalist Ogre Fans of Whereisthatistan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by ADemocraticallyElectedDictator with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.9 billion Whereisthatistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rollercoaster Land and Gun Range. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Whereisthatistanian economy, worth an astonishing 12,760 trillion Kalashnikovs 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, Tourism, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 457,368 Kalashnikovs, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Whereisthatistan is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, there are no more heroes any more, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, and there's a mortuary next to every Whereisthatistanian restaurant. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Whereisthatistan's national animal is the Opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Whereisthatistan is ranked 1,550th in the world and 52nd in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 1,033.91 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
