The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.923 billion AppleJackyians 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. 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 3,740 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 313,698 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, and one does not simply walk into the tundra. 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 13,397th in the world and 4th in Papastan for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 19.23 Bank.
