The King of Wolves of Apostate is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leopold II with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.661 billion Apostateses are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Augustine. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Apostatean economy, worth a remarkable 4,038 trillion Silver Notes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 466,336 Silver Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,370,334 per year while the poor average 125,026, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, and homeless people dying of starvation are thought to be a necessary cost of preventing terrorism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apostate's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Apostate is ranked 239,908th in the world and 68th in The Wolf Clan for Least Corrupt Governments, with 2.82 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
