OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Fallen Apples is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Most Gracious Majesty with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 12.75 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, Amnesty Interregional has condemned Fallen Apples for ignoring crimes against humanity, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. 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 4,484th in the West Pacific and 122,456th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -18 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
