The King of Wolves of Apostate is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leopold II with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.249 billion Apostateses have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Augustine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Apostatean economy, worth a remarkable 3,049 trillion Silver Notes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 420,610 Silver Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,440,555 per year while the poor average 90,213, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, vaccinations are mandatory, being Leopold II has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apostate's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Apostate is ranked 256th in the world and 1st in The Wolf Clan for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 16,215.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
