The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Whoop Dee Whoop with an iron fist, and notable for its feral children, aversion to nipples, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 44.387 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 government prioritizes Industry, with Administration and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loompaland. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth an astonishing 10,861 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, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. 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 244,703 Fishterous Correlations, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, nations across the world are quick to praise Whoop Dee Whoop's good looks and intellectual prowess, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dudeism.

Afi-Aftos is ranked 306,326th in the world and 15th in Fredonia for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -29 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
