OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Fallen Apples is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by His Most Gracious Majesty with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.831 billion Fallen Applesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, Corgi puppy is one of the most popular forenames in Fallen Apples, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances. 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 71st in the West Pacific and 5,214th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 91 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
