The Federal Republic of Appalachia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Eleanor Scotts with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.778 billion Appalachians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Knoxville. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Appalachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,182 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,089 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has enacted freedom of information, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Appalachia's national animal is the black bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Appalachia is ranked 202,667th in the world and 10th in Kentucky for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -20.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
