The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.112 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, 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,331 trillion Fishterous Correlations a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 192,377 Fishterous Correlations, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 625,773 per year while the poor average 44,558, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Whole-wheat loaves are sold under the counter in brown paper bags, piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, euthanasia is illegal, and exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated'. 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 207,948th in the world and 6th in Fredonia for Lowest Crime Rates, with 3.5 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
