OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Land of Ponis is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.25 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponis City. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, euthanasia is legal, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ponis's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Bit.

Ponis is ranked 3,414th in Osiris and 116,859th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -651.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
