Applesoft

The Federation of Applesoft is a large, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 73 million Applesoftians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The powerhouse Applesoftian economy, worth 6.55 trillion Microsoft Points a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 89,712 Microsoft Points, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 289,010 per year while the poor average 21,076, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Purported secret military bases are dismissed by Leader to be highly-advanced toilet factories, the police force is on a recruitment drive, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Applesoft's national animal is the Bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Applesoft is ranked 39,403rd in the world and 1,636th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 86.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
