The Republic of Apto is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Unit-98 with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 19.717 billion Apts are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Insurgo. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aptoan economy, worth a remarkable 3,182 trillion Kins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,409 Kins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, rumor has it that Unit-98 has won three lotteries in a row, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apto's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Apto is ranked 33,904th in the world and 1,410th in Lazarus for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 5.39 Bank.
