Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Courageous Heroes of Olthar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Celestia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.164 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, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Environment not 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 4,098 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 336,928 Bits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,977,236 per year while the poor average 26,820, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, politicians' financial records are locked up tighter than the nation's Bit reserves, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, and an enormous health awareness programme is underway. 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 7,241st in the world and 1st in The Bestest Region for Largest Black Market, with 41.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
