The Holy Red Zombie Nationstates of Apostate is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leopold II with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.211 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Augustine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Apostatean economy, worth a remarkable 3,018 trillion Silver Notes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 418,653 Silver Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,451,187 per year while the poor average 88,174, a ratio of 16.5 to 1.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, immigrants are told to pull themselves up by their worn-out budget bootstraps, and polite commuters on the Saint Augustine Metro always let hurried workers off the train first. 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 173,681st in the world and 45th in The Wolf Clan for Most Extreme, scoring 8.71 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
