The United Socialist States of Apetopia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Silverback McGee with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.352 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apetopolis. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Apetopian economy, worth 768 trillion Simias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,615 Simias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, Silverback McGee's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and edutainment video games are taking Apetopia's students to the next level. 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 174,717th in the world and 9,419th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14.87 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
