The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, free-roaming dinosaurs, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.155 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Administration and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,119 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 186,586 Fishterous Correlations, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 570,852 per year while the poor average 47,239, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

No one is worried about government policies any more, the government is a law unto itself, the barter economy has taken over as the Fishterous Correlation has become worthless, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. 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 39,421st in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 65.11 on the Rand Index.
