The Free Land of Ponis is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Celestia with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.63 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. 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.

Racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and military funding has been stripped back. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Bit.

Ponis is ranked 3,118th in Osiris and 113,518th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -15 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
