Aplexiana

Population250 million

The Dictatorship of Aplexiana is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 250 million Aplexians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.8%.

The all-consuming Aplexian economy, worth 24.3 trillion coveted shiny discs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 97,125 coveted shiny discs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 740,056 per year while the poor average 3,511, a ratio of 210 to 1.

Hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport, morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, cubicles often double as graves as citizens literally work themselves to death, and people experiencing anaphylactic shock are told to buck their ideas up. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Aplexiana's national animal is the capitalist pig dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Aplexiana is ranked 88,839th in the world and 2nd in peepul plants oxygen life for Most Influential, scoring 102 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
