The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.482 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.

It is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and the Great Aramanchovia Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region. 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 3,935th in the South Pacific and 116,371st in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 7 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
