The Post-Kragle Settlement of Apocolypseburg is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emmet with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.966 billion Apocolypseburgers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Null Island. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The all-consuming Apocolypseburgian economy, worth 387 trillion studs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 97,818 studs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 636,583 per year while the poor average 5,969, a ratio of 106 to 1.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, firebombing politicians' offices has become a common way of expressing dissatisfaction, closed universities are currently being converted into McRonald's restaurants, and corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Apocolypseburg's national animal is the giant sausage, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Apocolypseburg is ranked 234,959th in the world and 5th in The West Pole for Largest Governments, scoring 4.12 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
