The Free Land of Ponis is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Celestia with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The compassionate population of 3.825 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 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 Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 95%. 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.

Soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, Ponis has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. 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 131st in Osiris and 6,353rd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 34 on the Enoch Index.
