The King of Moon Wolves of Apostate is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leopold II with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.092 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Augustine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Apostatean economy, worth a remarkable 3,122 trillion Silver Notes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 343,471 Silver Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,044,466 per year while the poor average 87,719, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Apostate's national animal is the Grey Wolf Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Apostate is ranked 40,385th in the world and 23rd in The Wolf Clan for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 11.91 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
