Captain Apollo

Population16.392 billion

CapitalThe BattleStar Galactica


The Eru Ilúvatar of Fire and Ice of Captain Apollo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 16.392 billion Colonists hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The BattleStar Galactica. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Colonial economy, worth a remarkable 1,297 trillion Cubits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 79,129 Cubits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering, the diplomatic corps stinks, and edutainment video games are taking Captain Apollo's students to the next level. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Captain Apollo's national animal is the Cylon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Captain Apollo is ranked 10,157th in the world and 502nd in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 1,297 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
