The Apocalypse of GeodesicDragon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Herald Dawson with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.648 billion Apocalyptians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geotopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Apocalyptian economy, worth a remarkable 9,841 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 591,134 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,317,200 per year while the poor average 102,607, a ratio of 22.6 to 1.

Babysitters are a thing of the past, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, a recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. GeodesicDragon's national animal is the manticore, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Geotology.

GeodesicDragon is ranked 151,111th in the world and 4th in Friends of the Apocalypse for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.66 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
