The Republic of AppleCorporations is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its suspicion of poets, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.595 billion Employees are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The thriving Rose Gold economy, worth 160 trillion Ipads a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 61,850 Ipads, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 367,106 per year while the poor average 4,791, a ratio of 76.6 to 1.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, the studies of art and philosophy are banned, AppleCorporations has designated AppleCorporations City as its capital city, and Leader has just been declared ruler of AppleCorporations in an international press conference. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. AppleCorporations's national animal is the S Plus.

AppleCorporations is ranked 125,704th in the world and 151st in The United Federations for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 35.92 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
