The Agricultural Paradise of AppleJacky is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Applejack the Apple Queen with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, lack of airports, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.266 billion AppleJackyians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken 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 5,915 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 363,649 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, surveillance cameras are banned, and Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion. 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 12th in the world and 2nd in Papastan for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 57,262.42 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
