The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Whoop Dee Whoop with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 42.205 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, well-organized government prioritizes 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 Loompaland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 9,776 trillion Fishterous Correlations a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 231,649 Fishterous Correlations, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 785,338 per year while the poor average 50,453, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

The new classical revitalization of Loompaland is expected to be completed sometime in the next century, assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. 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 269,569th in the world and 10th in Fredonia for Smartest Citizens, with 0.2 quips per hour.
