The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.49 billion AppleJackyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient AppleJackyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,545 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 308,595 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AppleJacky's national animal is the Doge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ponyism.

AppleJacky is ranked 30th in the world and 1st in Papastan for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 5,724.76 Tourists Per Hour.
