The Dictatorship of Ameriganastan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Cody Wayne Lowery with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.677 billion Ameriganis 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lowery City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ameriganastanian economy, worth a remarkable 8,561 trillion Codies 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. 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 394,945 Codies, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, in a fit of passion Lord Cody Wayne Lowery has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ameriganastan's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The church of Saraya.

Ameriganastan is ranked 459th in the world and 9th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 36,480.84 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
