The Free Land of Ponis is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Celestia with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 4.477 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Social Welfare 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.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Ponis has found 1 easter egg), and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. 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 303rd in Osiris and 7,211th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 215 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
