The Nightmare Legion of Apocalyptic Assurance is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Apocalypsian with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.972 billion Assuranceans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, 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 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Assurancean economy, worth a remarkable 1,372 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 196,923 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 876th in the world and 43rd in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
