The Free Land of Ponis is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Celestia with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate population of 3.867 billion Ponisians 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 96%. 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.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', birth rates have hit an all-time low, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and most citizens in Ponis are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. 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 139th in Osiris and 6,041st in the world for Best Weather, with 145 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
