The Dictatorship of Ameriganastan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Darius Varheim with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.85 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 12,228 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 492,106 Varheims, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,763,673 per year while the poor average 98,475, a ratio of 17.9 to 1.

In a fit of passion Lord Darius Varheim has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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 11,030th in the world and 18th in The Alliance of Dictators for Highest Poor Incomes, with 98,475.63 Standard Monetary Units.
