The Dictatorship of Ameriganastan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Darius Varheim with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, avowedly heterosexual populace, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.958 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 Varheim City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ameriganastanian economy, worth an astonishing 14,302 trillion Varheims 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 Uranium Mining. 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 493,899 Varheims, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,802,282 per year while the poor average 96,104, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Breaking rocks in the hot sun now involves using your head, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, songs of praise to Lord Darius Varheim are filled with coded messages from the resistance, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. 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 10,191st in the world and 11th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,622.97 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
