Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Apetopia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Silverback McGee with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.932 billion Apetopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken 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 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apetopian economy, worth 563 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 143,377 Simias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Silverback McGee's questionably sane new coalition partners, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow. 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 155,256th in the world and 8,320th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -287.35 on the Hayek Index.
