Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Apetopia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Silverback McGee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.238 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, 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 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apetopian economy, worth 601 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 142,014 Simias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. 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 79,509th in the world and 3,918th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,670.05 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
