“You've meet with a terrible fate, haven't you?”

The Happy Mask Salesponies of Olthar is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Princess Celestia with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.45 billion 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.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.
Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, political activists are routinely executed, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, and locally produced computer games are being released faster than gamers can play them. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Olthar's national animal is the Filly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Ponyism, and its currency is the Bit.
