The King of Emotional Dismissal of Apostate is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leopold II with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.242 billion Apostateses have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Augustine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Apostatean economy, worth a remarkable 3,028 trillion Silver Notes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 418,173 Silver Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,432,208 per year while the poor average 89,691, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

The nation has declared war on all passing comets, citizens frequently duel to decide who gets to go for jury duty, government policy is dictated by Catholicism, and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. 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 Timber Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Apostate is ranked 73,428th in the world and 20th in The Wolf Clan for Most Stationary, with 138.26093929072 Days.
