The Republic of Fallen Apples is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Most Gracious Majesty with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.961 billion Fallen Applesians 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 relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fallen Apples City. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Fallen Applesian economy, worth a remarkable 6,397 trillion cute girl's numbers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 305,210 cute girl's numbers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, school uniforms are compulsory, and newspapers are running a front-page picture of His Most Gracious Majesty holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker. Crime is totally unknown. Fallen Apples's national animal is the corgi puppy, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fallen Apples is ranked 603rd in the world and 9th in the West Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 224.35 Quips Per Hour.
