The Most Dignified States of The Apprenticus Islands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Colonel Mehmed with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.808 billion Apprenticanss are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apprenticus City. The average income tax rate is 95%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, priests are being drafted by the church load, and volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (The Apprenticus Islands has found 1 easter egg). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Apprenticus Islands's national animal is the Apprentican Hunting Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Lapinism, and its currency is the Apprentican Credit.

The Apprenticus Islands is ranked 329th in Taijitu and 111,765th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
