The Empire of Equestia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Celestia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.48 billion Equestians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of solar city. The average income tax rate is 95%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Equestia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is solar, and its currency is the Bit.

Equestia is ranked 15th in Angels of Derp and 67,778th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 54 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
