The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 39.937 billion Afi-Aftosians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loompaland. The average income tax rate is 81.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 8,274 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 amazing 207,195 Fishterous Correlations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Genetic screening weeds out citizens whose legs don't bend easily at the knee, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign governments' extravagances, the economy is undergoing a traumatic transition to capitalism, and citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm. 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 1,168th in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Rudest Citizens, with 305.16 Insults Per Minute.
