The Emerging Light of Apabeossie is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Alićer Denisia with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.675 billion Apabeossians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sardilla. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apavi economy, worth a remarkable 2,023 trillion Aris a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 233,203 Aris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, the latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and short is not always sweet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Apabeossie's national animal is the kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Apabeossie is ranked 9,747th in the world and 147th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,994.26 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
