The Harmonious Orchard of Fishy Apples is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Jackie IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, fear of technology, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.814 billion Mer-Apples have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Environment, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Healthcare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Sweet Apple Ocean. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fishy Applesian economy, worth 770 trillion Farts a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 132,596 Farts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs, bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and new treatments are rejected if they cannot be explained using only one-syllable words. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fishy Apples's national animal is the Mermaid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Children of the Bobbing Apple.

Fishy Apples is ranked 168,401st in the world and 3rd in The Bunny Fire for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -19.6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
