The Empire of Equestia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Celestia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.089 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, Law & Order, and Education. 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.

Many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, organ donation is compulsory, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 14th in Angels of Derp and 20,281st in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 13 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
