|Leader||President James Porter Finnegan|
The American Federal Republic of Aprait is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President James Porter Finnegan with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.941 billion Apraitians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Saigon. The average income tax rate is 67.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Apraitian economy, worth 331 trillion Apraitian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 170,789 Apraitian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, financial investors are noting a boom in artillery, recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies, and the moon's craters are more numerous every day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aprait's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
