There is this league of nations organization in my game called 'Apolistic Palace', was that a real thing?

It's in the game Civilization 4 which is heavily based in history, but I can't find anything about 'Apolistic Palace' on the net besides that on the game.

Update:

No, not the Apostolic Palace, Apolistic. maybe a play off the papal palace but not the same thing.

    The Apostolic Palace, also called the Papal Palace or the Palace of the Vatican, is the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City.

    The palace is a complex of buildings, comprising the Papal Apartment, the Catholic Church's government offices, a handful of chapels, the Vatican Museum and the Vatican library. In all, there are over 1,000 rooms with the most famous including Raphael's Rooms and the Sistine Chapel with its renowned ceiling frescoes painted by Michelangelo (restored between 1980 and 1990).

    The other papal residences are at the Lateran Palace, and the Castel Gandolfo outside Rome. The Vatican Palace displaced the Lateran Palace in prominence during the fifteenth century; but it was eclipsed for an extended period by the Quirinal Palace.

    Before 1871, the Quirinal Palace was the Pope's official residence. After the final overthrow of the Papal States in 1870, the King of Italy confiscated that palace in 1871, making it the King's official residence. After the abolition of the Italian monarchy in 1946 it became the residence of the President of the Italian Republic.

    The Apostolic Palace appears as a Wonder of the World in the Beyond the Sword expansion for Sid Meier's Civilization IV, though the graphic representation is that of St. Peter's Basilica.
