The Equestrian Sky Colony of New Cloudsdale is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.775 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.

Anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and most citizens in New Cloudsdale are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. 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 16th in Atlantian Oceania and 9,198th in the world for Best Weather, with 115 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
