The Most Serene Republic of Apellidor is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 600 million Apellidorans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apellidor-CRACTOAP. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Apellidoran economy, worth 62.3 trillion Apellidoran Thalers 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 Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 103,897 Apellidoran Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Apellidoran pirates, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, and Apellidoran athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apellidor's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Apellidor is ranked 9,786th in the world and 16th in Social Technocratic Union for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,782.83 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
