The His Royal Highness King of Apostate is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Machiavelli with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.657 billion Apostateses are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ur. The average income tax rate is 87.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Apostatean economy, worth a remarkable 1,617 trillion Silver Notes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 285,899 Silver Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, Apostate has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. 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 Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Apostate is ranked 870th in the world and 1st in The Wolf Clan for Most Devout, with 10,637.23 Prayers Per Hour.
