The Apocalypse of GeodesicDragon is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Herald Dawson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.568 billion Apocalyptians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geotopia. The average income tax rate is 90.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Apocalyptian economy, worth an astonishing 11,510 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 619,885 credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, ritual mummification is making a comeback, rumor has it that Herald Dawson has won three lotteries in a row, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. GeodesicDragon's national animal is the manticore, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Geotology.

GeodesicDragon is ranked 209,064th in the world and 1st in Friends of the Apocalypse for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.69 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
