The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, complete lack of public education, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.907 billion Aramanchovians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arazmaz. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aramanchovian economy, worth an astonishing 12,685 trillion Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 750,332 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,752,989 per year while the poor average 10,369, a ratio of 651 to 1.

Public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, posters encourage people to "Just Do It!", and terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors. Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aramanchovia's national animal is the Fossil, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshiping The Leader.

Aramanchovia is ranked 6th in the world and 1st in Rest In Peace for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 1,716.24 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
