Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.706 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, 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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aramanchovian economy, worth a remarkable 7,253 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 619,611 Coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,425,783 per year while the poor average 56,515, a ratio of 60.6 to 1.

The Treasury and Finance Ministry have been outsourced, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 9,197th in the world and 433rd in the South Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 80.38 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
