The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.493 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 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 3,994 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 significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 319,721 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

AppleJackyian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, organ donation is compulsory, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. 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 242,083rd in the world and 4th in Papastan for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -58.94 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
