The Anarcho-Capitalist Ogre Fans of Whereisthatistan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by ADemocraticallyElectedDictator with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 26.705 billion Whereisthatistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business 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 12,083 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 452,492 Kalashnikovs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,206,756 per year while the poor average 21,311, a ratio of 150 to 1.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors. 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 146,931st in the world and 7,568th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 50.08 on the Human Development Index.
