The Empire of Equestia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Celestia with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.272 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.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. 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 12th in Angels of Derp and 59,211th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 17 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
