The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.724 billion, 1.805 billion of whom are zombies, 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.

Gun ownership is compulsory, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. 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 1st in the South Pacific and 95th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 51 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Aramanchovia is currently researching a cure.
