The Phantasm of Afi-Aftos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by El Guapo with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.58 billion Afi-Aftosians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreck City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Afi-Aftosian economy, worth a remarkable 7,337 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 190,193 Fishterous Correlations, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,048,099 per year while the poor average 17,473, a ratio of 60.0 to 1.

Veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase, and frustrated teenage boys are told that if they like it then they should have put a ring on it. 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 205,206th in the world and 4th in Fredonia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -106.34 on the Hayek Index.
