"Only if it turns out that reality is actually nothing more than a holographic illusion created by the interplay of subatomic particles on a vast two-dimensional membrane."

This article covers a subject that has been deemed non-canon by either the author or the Back to the Future licensees, and thus should not be taken as a part of the "real" Back to the Future universe.


Apocrypha shown on a map of America.

Apocrypha was an empire of America in 2,991,299,129,912. It appeared to comprise the modern U.S. states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, as well as parts of Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and Canada. It possibly contains others as well, as the geography has changed slightly from that in the 21st century.

Apocrypha was the largest empire in North America, and Tannen the Barbarian even considered it "the largest empire in the world". In 2,991,299,129,912, it was ruled over by the Queen of Apocrypha, who tasked Tannen with stealing the ruby begonia from the enchanted tower, which was located in the southern part of the empire.

A major settlement in Apocrypha was Psuedonymia.

Behind the scenes[]

  • The word 'Apocrypha' refers to works not considered genuine or of doubtful origin. This may hint that the comics' portrayal of 2,991,299,129,912 is in fact apocryphal.
  • Errata may actually be larger than Apocrypha. However, Errata continues off the edge of the map and its size cannot be verified.
