The Armed Republic of El General Augusto Pinochet is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Augusto Pinochet with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.605 billion Pinochetians 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, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santiago. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient El General Augusto Pinochetian economy, worth 213 trillion Grand Pesos 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 Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 132,942 Grand Pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 646,042 per year while the poor average 15,800, a ratio of 40.9 to 1.

Wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, legions of police officers force people to move into massive urban apartments, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, and strange men lingering in offices distributing television sets is a basis for a system of government. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. El General Augusto Pinochet's national animal is the Andean Condor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

El General Augusto Pinochet is ranked 55,540th in the world and 1st in The Augusto Pinochet Vengeance Force for Highest Economic Output, with 213 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
