The Self-Proclaimed Empire of AP0CALYPSE is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Harbinger with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.754 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 15,274 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 415,589 bloody severed fingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Lobster tastes best when it is red, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, society has literally been thrown to the wolves, and workers' complaints never reach central planning. 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 13,247th in the world and 18th in Antarctica for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 7,102.51 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
