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 14.056 billion Fallen Applesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. 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 15th in the West Pacific and 906th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 484 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
