The Republic of Fallen Apples is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Most Gracious Majesty with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.358 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.

The recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues. 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 3,276th in the West Pacific and 111,141st in the world for Most Average, scoring -1,424 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
