The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and feral children. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.789 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Administration and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,639 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, highly specialized black market in 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 impressive 196,959 Fishterous Correlations, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 687,474 per year while the poor average 41,046, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

From the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Afi-Aftos, tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs, Amnesty Interregional has condemned Afi-Aftos for ignoring crimes against humanity, and the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Afi-Aftos's national animal is the Vermicious Knid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dudeism.

Afi-Aftos is ranked 220,206th in the world and 5th in Fredonia for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.32 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
