The Armed Republic of Appoo is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 518 million Appooans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Order 66 City. The average income tax rate is 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Appooan economy, worth 58.5 trillion memeses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 113,011 memeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is lending a hand to private industry, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Appoo's national animal is the panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Appoo is ranked 147,602nd in the world and 140th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 544.27 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
