The Colony of Apollo 19 is a large, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 95 million Astronauts are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The powerhouse an Astronaut economy, worth 8.44 trillion Moon Rocks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 88,873 Moon Rocks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 299,152 per year while the poor average 19,565, a ratio of 15.3 to 1.

Minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, hell is not always other people, tax assessment offices double as polling stations, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Apollo 19 City to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Apollo 19's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Apollo 19 is ranked 128,498th in the world and 137th in Texas for Lowest Crime Rates, with 58.75 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
