The Eater of Penguin Meat Pie of Apatosaurus is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Janet Spinos with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.249 billion Apatosaurs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dinosaurtopia. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apatosaurusian economy, worth 312 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 Soda Sales. Average income is 96,243 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework, children can sing 'We Are the Champions' but can't spell it, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, and urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts. 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 227,675th in the world and 10,504th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.98 Obesity Rate.
