The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 38.166 billion Afi-Aftosians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,123 trillion Fishterous Correlations a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 186,633 Fishterous Correlations, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 570,994 per year while the poor average 47,251, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

The barter economy has taken over as the Fishterous Correlation has become worthless, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, government policies change at the drop of a rabbit, and folk are absolutely certain that you can never be absolutely certain. 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 7,616th in the world and 2nd in Fredonia for Highest Average Incomes, with 186,633.07 Standard Monetary Units.
