The Python of Apatosaurus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Python with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.602 billion Apatosaurs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dinosaurtopia. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Apatosaurusian economy, worth 81.4 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 50,821 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, environmental officials dismiss uncontrolled wildfires burning down major cities as nature taking its course, frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apatosaurus's national animal is the Polynesian rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dinosaurism.

Apatosaurus is ranked 55,202nd in the world and 1,911th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.84 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
