The Carrot Lovers of Olthar is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Princess Celestia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.936 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.
The Great Olthar Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', Filly racing stadiums are open 24/7, and atheists refusing to attend church are heavily fined by the government. 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.
