Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Apetopia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Silverback McGee with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.917 billion Apetopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apetopian economy, worth 704 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 143,210 Simias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Apetopian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, escalators are avoided at all costs, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. 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 3,144th in the world and 130th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 8,543.39 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
