The Aprosia of New Aapelistan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Alí Hamaném with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, enforced nudity, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 13.09 billion Aprosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dasharód. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Aprosian economy, worth 727 trillion Aprosian márks 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 black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 55,576 Aprosian márks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags, behind every local dictator is an Aprosian advisor whispering in their ear, little children cry as their rainbow drawings are seized by the Straight-Thought Police, and party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend. 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 you, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular.

New Aapelistan is ranked 22,437th in the world and 49th in The Western Isles for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 10.03 Bank.
