Apicem Rapax

Population3.288 billion


The Free-Market Republic of Apicem Rapax is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.288 billion Apei enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 18.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rapaxian economy, worth 593 trillion Cryptoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 180,404 Cryptoes, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

AR-SPAN features senators wrestling with ever-increasing production elements, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, beggars on the street are often heard asking for spare votes, and the military has adopted a weird double-fisted salute. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Apicem Rapax's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Apicem Rapax is ranked 36,915th in the world and 1,489th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,575.79 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
