The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.62 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, 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 5,566 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 356,399 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, saying "don't do anything that Applejack the Apple Queen wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. 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 284th in the world and 3rd in Papastan for Highest Poor Incomes, with 346,351.54 Standard Monetary Units.
