The Self-Proclaimed Empire of AP0CALYPSE is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Harbinger with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 42.352 billion AP0CALYPSEians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terminus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient AP0CALYPSEian economy, worth an astonishing 17,888 trillion bloody severed fingers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 422,379 bloody severed fingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Harbinger's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, expectant parents view twins with equal parts joy and suspicion, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. AP0CALYPSE's national animal is the bio-organic weapon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Coming Darkness.

AP0CALYPSE is ranked 89,601st in the world and 20th in Antarctica for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,775.07 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
