The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.22 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 11,960 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 737,376 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,919,660 per year while the poor average 21,196, a ratio of 279 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, Aramanchovia's fine wines are renowned throughout the region, The Leader often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, and caroling is considered a public disturbance. 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 161,867th in the world and 7,026th in the South Pacific for Most Devout, with 1.61 Prayers Per Hour.
