The Anarcho-Capitalist Ogre Fans of Whereisthatistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by ADemocraticallyElectedDictator with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.025 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, 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 10,464 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 454,471 Kalashnikovs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,809,771 per year while the poor average 76,875, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.

Competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, and cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement. 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 30,188th in the world and 1,769th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
