The Dominion of Adapa is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Angius with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.281 billion Adapans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apkallu. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Adapan economy, worth 198 trillion ducats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,791 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, and janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adapa's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Singularity.

Adapa is ranked 88,521st in the world and 3,548th in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 595.95 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
