The Confederacy of The Free Land of Apes is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Doctor Who with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.949 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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Apesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,143 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 215,455 Free Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. 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 203,715th in the world and 9,498th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -25.6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
