The United Kingdom of Apsalandian Empire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Biraj Apsalandan Rex with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.619 billion Apsalandian Empireans 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 government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apsaland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.4%.

The very strong Apsalandian Empirean economy, worth 127 trillion Apsalandian marks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,869 Apsalandian marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apsalandian Empire's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Apsalandian Empire is ranked 117,705th in the world and 6,163rd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 16.23 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
