The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.397 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.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. 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 89th in the South Pacific and 4,900th in the world for Safest, scoring 538.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
