Regional Influence: Superpower


The Holy Empire of Apostolites is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Holy Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.181 billion Apostolites 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Megas Solomon. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Apostolitesian economy, worth a remarkable 8,526 trillion ichthys 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 a breathtaking 646,866 ichthys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Apostolites at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, Apostolites is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apostolites's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Holy Emperor's Word.

Apostolites is ranked 77th in the world and 1st in Holy Imperial Hegemony for Highest Poor Incomes, with 474,512.06 Standard Monetary Units.
