The United Socialist States of Apetopia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Silverback McGee with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.282 billion Apetopians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apetopolis. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Apetopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 trillion Simias 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,993 Simias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apetopia's national animal is the Silverback, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Apetopia is ranked 155,756th in the world and 7,934th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -18.06 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
