The Federal Republic of Appalachia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Eleanor Scotts with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.82 billion Appalachians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Knoxville. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Appalachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,536 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,415 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Appalachia's national animal is the black bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Appalachia is ranked 3,149th in the world and 1st in The Appalachian Mountains for Lowest Crime Rates, with 122.57 law-abiding acts per hour.
