The Republic of Fallen Apples is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Most Gracious Majesty with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.48 billion Fallen Applesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fallen Apples City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fallen Apples's national animal is the corgi puppy, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the cute girl's number.

Fallen Apples is ranked 2nd in the West Pacific and 264th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,404.75 Net Tourists per hour.
