We welcome The Queendom of Despair Aponia (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Despair+Aponia), as the 163rd member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Queendom of Despair Aponia is a tiny, pleasant nation, renowned for its burgeoning rat population. Its cynical population of 5 million are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized government appears to have no policy direction whatsoever. The average income tax rate is 18%, but much higher for the wealthy. A very small private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.
Crime is relatively low, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Despair Aponia's national animal is the rat and its currency is the hook.
