The Orchard of Applepone is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Apple Bloom with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.377 billion Applepones hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bloomington. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Appleponean economy, worth a remarkable 1,064 trillion bits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 144,359 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism. Crime is totally unknown. Applepone's national animal is the pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is apples.

Applepone is ranked 9,162nd in the world and 9th in Pony Lands for Most Secular, with 92.15 Atheism Rate.
