The Semi-Direct Democracy of Aprenencia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 874 million Aprenencians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aprenenciapolis. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aprenencian economy, worth 83.5 trillion Aprenencian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,585 Aprenencian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, and prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aprenencia's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aprenencia is ranked 29,228th in the world and 1,381st in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,626.86 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
