The Mobile Territory of Apicem Rapax is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.072 billion Apei 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertalia. The average income tax rate is 35.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rapaxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,054 trillion Cryptoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 207,883 Cryptoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, Apicem Rapax has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, movie references are legally admissible in court, and procrastination is a national sport. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-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 66,225th in the world and 53rd in Underworld for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 389.84 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
