The Equestrian Sky Colony of New Cloudsdale is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.715 billion Equestrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Social Welfare, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Cloudsdale. The average income tax rate is 85%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the government is giving peace a chance, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Cloudsdale's national animal is the Atlantian Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Harmonism, and its currency is the Bit.

New Cloudsdale is ranked 62nd in Atlantian Oceania and 36,642nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
