The Dictatorship of Ameriganastan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Cody Wayne Lowery with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.794 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 9,122 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 400,201 Codies, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, in a fit of passion Lord Cody Wayne Lowery has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 50,875th in the world and 65th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 97.58 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
