Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Nightmare Legion of Apocalyptic Assurance is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Apocalypsian with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.81 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, socially-minded 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 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Assurancean economy, worth a remarkable 1,285 trillion Credits 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 a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 188,835 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Apocalyptic Assurance to be bombproof, and the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Assurancean radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity. 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 173,442nd in the world and 4,761st in Lazarus for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 12.72 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
