The Harmonious Orchard of Fishy Apples is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Jackie IV with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.794 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, although Environment, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Law & Order and Healthcare aren't funded at all. 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 768 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 63,389th in the world and 2nd in The Bunny Fire for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 64.92 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
