The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.74 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 Defense, although Industry 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 10,456 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 Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 709,383 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,121,340 per year while the poor average 31,371, a ratio of 163 to 1.

Dessert dishes make up the Aramanchovian breakfast menu, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and adults hang around outside comic stores to ask kids to go and buy magazines for them. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 168,913th in the world and 7,181st in the South Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 5.79 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
