The Self-Proclaimed Empire of AP0CALYPSE is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Harbinger with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.947 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, 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 14,268 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 slick, highly efficient, 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 396,935 bloody severed fingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, and lobster tastes best when it is red. 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 135,391st in the world and 41st in Antarctica for Highest Drug Use, scoring 19.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
