The Anarcho-Capitalist Ogre Fans of Whereisthatistan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by ADemocraticallyElectedDictator with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 28.125 billion Whereisthatistanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 12,842 trillion Kalashnikovs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 456,623 Kalashnikovs, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Only the fast and the furious are brave enough to drive, hotels often double as quarantine zones, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, and on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life. 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 78th in the world and 2nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 1,462.42 on the Hayek Index.
