The Anarcho-Capitalist Ogre Fans of Whereisthatistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by ADemocraticallyElectedDictator with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.672 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 11,217 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 454,647 Kalashnikovs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,595,242 per year while the poor average 93,995, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

Creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards. 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 172,439th in the world and 8,998th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -69.79 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
