The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.214 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 3,416 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 304,687 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to AppleJacky's border, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, and the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property. 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 149,672nd in the world and 2nd in Papastan for Most Average, scoring 30.21 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
