The Corporate Welfare State of Aproved is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.034 billion Aprovedians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.2%.

The Aprovedian economy, worth 49.1 trillion apros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 47,444 apros, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the country is preparing for war, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aproved's national animal is the lion.

Aproved is ranked 67,861st in the world and 2,778th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 53 on the Rand Index.
