The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 39.262 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 government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loompaland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 8,004 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 203,868 Fishterous Correlations, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Days begin with afternoon tea, movie references are legally admissible in court, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television. 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 226,207th in the world and 6th in Fredonia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -10.84 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
