The Anarcho-Capitalist Ogre Fans of Whereisthatistan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by ADemocraticallyElectedDictator with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.147 billion Whereisthatistanians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rollercoaster Land and Gun Range. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Tourism.
Euthanasia is legal, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Whereisthatistan's national animal is the Opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Kalashnikov.
