Overview 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 remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.585 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 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apetopian economy, worth 647 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 141,204 Simias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. 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 97,103rd in the world and 5,194th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 622.09 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
