The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.56 billion AppleJackyians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient AppleJackyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,572 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 309,078 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, members of majority races are forced out of their homes to make way for Bigtopians, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, and people take government jobs for the frequent flier miles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AppleJacky's national animal is the Doge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ponyism.

AppleJacky is ranked 56th in the world and 1st in Papastan for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 11,034.35 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
