The Empire of Apermania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Ludwig I with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.568 billion Apermanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ludwigsburg. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apermanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,064 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,062 Imperial Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A man's 250 square-foot apartment is his castle, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, and organ donation rates have hit a new low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apermania's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Bible Believing Christianity.

Apermania is ranked 221,131st in the world and 339th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -19.9 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
