The Confederacy of The Free Land of Apes is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Doctor Who with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.182 billion Apesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apetown. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Apesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,709 trillion Free Francs 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 208,975 Free Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Max Barry is this year's Miss The Free Land of Apes, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, the government is allowing greater autonomy for some regions in the hopes of quelling growing secessionist movements, and crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Free Land of Apes's national animal is the Alpine Ibex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Free Land of Apes is ranked 13,758th in the world and 1,377th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 2,359 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
