The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.481 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 3,991 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 319,829 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A degree in Applejack The Apple Queen Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, the entire entry for AppleJacky in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', legislators toe the party line lest the Sergeant-at-Arms decide to conduct "truncheon practice" on the backbench, and AppleJacky is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. 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 50th in the world and 2nd in Papastan for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 16,816.35 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
