The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.908 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 Administration. 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 4,191 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 324,756 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, the comic book series 'Applejack the Apple Queen and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. 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 2,832nd in the world and 4th in Papastan for Highest Economic Output, with 4,191 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
