The Holy Empire of Apostolites is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Holy Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.809 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, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. 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 5,082 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 577,011 ichthys, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters, the nation's new currency features full-length portraits of Holy Emperor in ermine and velvet garb, and assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export. 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 22,222nd in the world and 1st in Holy Imperial Hegemony for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,232.46 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
