Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.123 billion Aramanchovians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arazmaz. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aramanchovian economy, worth a remarkable 8,935 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, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 680,920 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,664,187 per year while the poor average 35,758, a ratio of 130 to 1.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague, and supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small caliber bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Aramanchovia's national animal is the Spined Tiger Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshipping The Leader.

Aramanchovia is ranked 179,471st in the world and 8,226th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 18.62 Years.
