The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.562 billion Afi-Aftosians 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 is primarily concerned with Industry, with Administration and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,335 trillion Fishterous Correlations a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 190,220 Fishterous Correlations, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,043,092 per year while the poor average 17,665, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

The nation's endangered species are no longer endangered, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, hunters often become the hunted, and veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations. 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 45,607th in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Most Authoritarian, with 1,058.42 milliStalins.
