The Self-Proclaimed Empire of AP0CALYPSE is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Harbinger with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 40.443 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 17,067 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 422,020 bloody severed fingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is telling wizards to put their heart into their work, it is impossible to get any work done as auditors swarm every inch of government factories and mines, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, and state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Harbinger's portrait. 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 1,795th in the world and 3rd in Antarctica for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 254.21 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
