Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Courageous Heroes of Olthar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Princess Celestia with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, enslaved workforce, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.013 billion Oltharians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Oltharian economy, worth a remarkable 3,961 trillion Bits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 329,763 Bits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,885,568 per year while the poor average 27,890, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

Poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, Princess Celestia claims to be the epitome of family values, much of Olthar's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Olthar's national animal is the Filly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ponyism.

Olthar is ranked 17,415th in the world and 1st in The Bestest Region for Lowest Crime Rates, with 83.07 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
