The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.293 billion Afi-Aftosians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. The average income tax rate is 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 8,058 trillion Fishterous Correlations a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Gambling, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 216,083 Fishterous Correlations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Just as students finish their homework it's time for school, millions of Afi-Aftosians are excellent swimmers, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, and holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Afi-Aftos's national animal is the Vermicious Knid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dudeism.

Afi-Aftos is ranked 4,959th in the world and 1st in Fredonia for Most Influential, scoring 10,041 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
