The Republic of Political-Apathy is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.835 billion Political-Apathyians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Healthcare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Political-Apathyian economy, worth 474 trillion Who Careses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 123,854 Who Careses, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, and the homeless more often beg for mercy than money. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Political-Apathy's national animal is the none, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Apathyism.

Political-Apathy is ranked 2,167th in the world and 105th in Lazarus for Most Corrupt Governments, with 231.99 Kickbacks Per Hour.
