The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.339 billion AppleJackyians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient AppleJackyian economy, worth a remarkable 4,409 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 330,584 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seats at the back of the bus are reserved for homosexuals, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AppleJacky's national animal is the Doge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ponyism.

AppleJacky is ranked 6th in the world and 1st in Papastan for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 34,601.79 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
