The Dominion of Adapa is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Angius with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 765 million Adapans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apkallu. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Adapan economy, worth 104 trillion ducats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,742 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, euthanasia is legal, and customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adapa's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Adapa is ranked 73,834th in the world and 2,696th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 170.42 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
