The King of Wolves of Apostate is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leopold II with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.684 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. 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 3,920 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. Average income is an amazing 451,444 Silver Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,431,357 per year while the poor average 108,556, a ratio of 13.2 to 1.

The true length of the coastline of Apostate may never be measured, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, and under doctor's orders Leopold II is going on a diet and abolishing capital punishment. 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 36,265th in the world and 11th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,033.35 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
