The Dictatorship of Ameriganastan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Darius Varheim with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.214 billion Ameriganis 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varheim City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ameriganastanian economy, worth an astonishing 12,922 trillion Varheims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 492,951 Varheims, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,766,701 per year while the poor average 98,644, a ratio of 17.9 to 1.

International negotiations always lead to a lot of missile-laneous expenses, the nation is relieved that all of the recent madness has finally come to an end, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, and couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ameriganastan's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Saraya.

Ameriganastan is ranked 3,724th in the world and 9th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Populations, with 26.2 billion Capita.
