The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.69 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, 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.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, Arazmaz is a police state during international summits, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up. 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 2,745th in the South Pacific and 77,274th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 46 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
