The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its conspicuous electricity pylons, smutty television, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.114 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, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 12,910 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 754,374 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,669,737 per year while the poor average 12,093, a ratio of 551 to 1.

Students in Aramanchovia's schools rarely attend their classes, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, the mummified remains of former kings are apparently discovered every time a tourist loses their wallet, and it's best to decline if The Leader offers to buy a round of drinks. 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 worshiping The Leader.

Aramanchovia is ranked 59th in the world and 1st in Rest In Peace for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,521.6 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
