The Free Fascist State of Greater-Appalachia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by John Alexander Smith with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.394 billion Appalachians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charleston. The average income tax rate is 15.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Appalachian economy, worth 294 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,741 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, spousal homicide rates have tripled in recent months, protecting the land is holey work, and the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater-Appalachia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Greater-Appalachia is ranked 50,104th in the world and 16th in Fifth Empire for Most Influential, scoring 472 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
