The Self-Proclaimed Empire of AP0CALYPSE is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Harbinger with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 46.343 billion AP0CALYPSEians 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terminus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient AP0CALYPSEian economy, worth an astonishing 19,579 trillion bloody severed fingers 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, broadly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 amazing 422,481 bloody severed fingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Tumbleweeds are seen blowing through the nation's airspace, signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading AP0CALYPSEian justice, quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, and ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. AP0CALYPSE's national animal is the bio-organic weapon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Coming Darkness.

AP0CALYPSE is ranked 280,499th in the world and 47th in Antarctica for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -33.45 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
