The Self-Proclaimed Empire of AP0CALYPSE is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Harbinger with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.269 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, 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 13,990 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 slick, highly efficient, 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 396,684 bloody severed fingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Most pop videos prominently feature the AP0CALYPSEian flag, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs, and prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls. 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 354th in the world and 3rd in Antarctica for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 619.11 on the Hayek Index.
