The Fresh Prince of Wolves of Apostate is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leopold II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.534 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Augustine. The average income tax rate is 44.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Apostatean economy, worth a remarkable 3,646 trillion Silver Notes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 382,468 Silver Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, the new Grand Inquisitor of Righteous Scientific Inquiry has ordered a surprising amount of hemlock, hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders, and advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Apostate's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Apostate is ranked 172,630th in the world and 123rd in The Wolf Clan for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 329.44 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
