The Dinosaur Republic of Apatosaurus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Janet Spinos with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.231 billion Apatosaurs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dinosaurtopia. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apatosaurusian economy, worth 310 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Soda Sales. Average income is 96,026 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

State dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Apatosaurus's radio stations, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime is totally unknown. Apatosaurus's national animal is the Polynesian rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dinosaurism.

Apatosaurus is ranked 3,088th in the world and 88th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 8,169.92 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
