Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Legendary Ponymon of Olthar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Princess Celestia with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.138 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are 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 4,592 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 Gambling. Average income is an amazing 349,533 Bits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,981,677 per year while the poor average 30,142, a ratio of 65.7 to 1.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Canterlot, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 25,783rd in the world and 1st in The Bestest Region for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
