The Not Jolly Land of Aramanchovia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, otherworldly petting zoo, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.681 billion Aramanchovians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arazmaz. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aramanchovian economy, worth an astonishing 12,435 trillion Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 745,489 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,505,207 per year while the poor average 13,187, a ratio of 493 to 1.

A third of Aramanchovians are e-certified CEOs, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, The Leader's new android secretary is the latest media darling, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aramanchovia's national animal is the Fossil, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshipping The Leader.

Aramanchovia is ranked 328th in the world and 1st in Rest In Peace for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 18,910.95 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
