The Republic of Fallen Apples is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Most Gracious Majesty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.309 billion Fallen Applesians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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.

Fallen Apples's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales. 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 253rd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 74 on the Enoch Index.
