The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.409 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 Administration. 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 5,453 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 major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 353,925 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, and psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests. 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 241,054th in the world and 3rd in Papastan for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
