The Aprosia of New Aapelistan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Alí Hamaném with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 11.539 billion Aprosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dasharód. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient New Aapelistanian economy, worth 605 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 52,474 Aprosian márks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's children are known for being even more apathetic and cynical than their parents, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, and women find themselves saying "my eyes are up here" more often than they used to. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 25,254th in the world and 58th in The Western Isles for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 71.77 Effective Tax Rate.
