The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 40.164 billion Afi-Aftosians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Industry, although Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loompaland. The average income tax rate is 82.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 8,488 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 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 211,347 Fishterous Correlations, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

In a baffling press conference El Guapo proudly dismantled a broken door, most foreigners can't name the leader of Afi-Aftos, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Afi-Aftos's national animal is the Vermicious Knid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dudeism.

Afi-Aftos is ranked 231,063rd in the world and 5th in Fredonia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -12.6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
