The Anarcho-Capitalist Ogre Fans of Whereisthatistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by ADemocraticallyElectedDictator with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, ritual sacrifices, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.574 billion Whereisthatistanians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rollercoaster Land and Gun Range. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Whereisthatistanian economy, worth an astonishing 10,207 trillion Kalashnikovs 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, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 452,198 Kalashnikovs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,702,743 per year while the poor average 83,740, a ratio of 20.3 to 1.

Kids who move from attending a public school in the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class, the Whereisthatistan Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', and creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Whereisthatistan's national animal is the Opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Whereisthatistan is ranked 4,963rd in the world and 179th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,927.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
