The Honorable King of Wolves of Apostate is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leopold II with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.666 billion Apostateses 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Augustine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Apostatean economy, worth a remarkable 3,352 trillion Silver Notes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 437,384 Silver Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,382,411 per year while the poor average 105,659, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Apostate's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Apostate is ranked 5,108th in the world and 3rd in The Wolf Clan for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,977.56 Tourists Per Hour.
