Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Nightmare Legion of Apocalyptic Assurance is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Apocalypsian with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.332 billion Assuranceans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kharos. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Assurancean economy, worth a remarkable 1,386 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 189,097 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Apocalyptic Assurance's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, the right to free speech is being drastically curtailed, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Assurancean Liberator", and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apocalyptic Assurance's national animal is the Armoured Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Apocalyptic Assurance is ranked 923rd in the world and 29th in Lazarus for Highest Poor Incomes, with 174,044.85 Standard Monetary Units.
