The People's Republic of Apophiss is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The People's Council of Apophiss with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 873 million Apophissians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apocrypha. The average income tax rate is 30.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Apophissian economy, worth 65.7 trillion Ethereums a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 75,308 Ethereums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Apophissian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apophiss's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Apophiss is ranked 47,906th in the world and 2,408th in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,109.72 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
