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 enslaved workforce, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.539 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, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. 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 4,308 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 343,578 Bits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,337,498 per year while the poor average 18,422, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and the clergy of Ponyism remains a single-sex institution. 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 3,781st in the world and 1st in The Bestest Region for Most Conservative, scoring 86.85 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
