The Self-Proclaimed Empire of AP0CALYPSE is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Harbinger with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, aversion to nipples, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.796 billion AP0CALYPSEians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terminus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient AP0CALYPSEian economy, worth an astonishing 15,732 trillion bloody severed fingers 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 an amazing 416,249 bloody severed fingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, all AP0CALYPSEians love the taste of self-sufficiency, you gots to be part of the Party to get in to the party, and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. AP0CALYPSE's national animal is the bio-organic weapon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Coming Darkness.

AP0CALYPSE is ranked 46th in the world and 1st in Antarctica for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 35,382.27 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
