The Republican Confederacy of Appalachialand is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Prezadint fer life Billy Boy Lee with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.837 billion Appalachialandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yeehaw City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Appalachialandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,672 trillion Confederate dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 208,197 Confederate dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,384,532 per year while the poor average 11,946, a ratio of 115 to 1.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, children playing with walkie-talkies are told to 'get a job', veterans' meet-ups involve a lot of tail sniffing, and nocturnal light pollution is mostly blue. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Appalachialand's national animal is the Largemouth bass, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Fundamentalist Evangelical Church.

Appalachialand is ranked 240,825th in the world and 187th in Texas for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -25.88 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
