The Ai tuuk te red beer of New Aapelistan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Aleksei Ivanůvić NijŠkov with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 5.728 billion Aapelistanians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davgarůd. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient New Aapelistanian economy, worth 306 trillion Aapelistanian Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 53,513 Aapelistanian Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

One lone government employee can be seen hunting for the elusive stray white dog, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Aapelistan's national animal is the Aprosian Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

New Aapelistan is ranked 116,987th in the world and 282nd in The Western Isles for Most Politically Free, scoring 49.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
