The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its feral children, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.153 billion Afi-Aftosians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Administration and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,892 trillion Fishterous Correlations a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Gambling, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 212,430 Fishterous Correlations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The term "Native Afi-Aftosian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, Amnesty Interregional has condemned Afi-Aftos for ignoring crimes against humanity, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and genetic researchers have been expelled. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Afi-Aftos's national animal is the Vermicious Knid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dudeism.

Afi-Aftos is ranked 16,189th in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 67,977.71 Standard Monetary Units.
