The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.295 billion Aramanchovians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arazmaz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Aramanchovian economy, worth a remarkable 4,160 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 501,522 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,727,982 per year while the poor average 19,961, a ratio of 186 to 1.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Aramanchovia's national animal is the Spined Tiger Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshipping The Leader.

Aramanchovia is ranked 21st in the South Pacific and 1,040th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 175 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
