The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.384 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arazmaz. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology industries.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, anti-tourism militias patrol the borders, the government snoops on private internet connections, and computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Aramanchovia's national animal is the Spined Tiger Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is worshipping The Leader, and its currency is the Coin.

Aramanchovia is ranked 3rd in the South Pacific and 150th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 1,024 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
