The United Socialist States of Apetopia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Silverback McGee with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.972 billion Apetopians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apetopolis. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Apetopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,163 trillion Simias 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,008 Simias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apetopia's national animal is the Silverback, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Apetopia is ranked 3,714th in the world and 214th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.49 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
