The Deceased Nation of Apatosaurus is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Janet Spinos with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, rampant corporate plagiarism, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.933 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 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apatosaurusian economy, worth 624 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 105,220 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, and immigrants who don't like the taste of Apatosaurusian Turnip Chips are immediately deported. Crime is totally unknown. 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 279,912th in the world and 62nd in The Free Nations Region for Most Avoided, scoring 0.89 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
