The Empire of Apermania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Ludwig I with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.794 billion Apermanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ludwigsburg. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apermanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,198 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,721 Imperial Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, government officials who do an offal job get smoked, the only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice, and unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apermania's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Bible Believing Christianity.

Apermania is ranked 197,800th in the world and 242nd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 46.97 Whatever.
