It's a casasstrophe!

A blossoming empire full of various Equestrian nations, this region seeks peace and acceptance. Originally founded by Makrtopia, and currently managed by its major World Assembly delegate, The United Utopia of Untspah, Equestria invites and welcomes with open arms anyone wanting a new home or second chance.

To new nations: Please, be certain to join the World Assembly, and once you have, don't forget to endorse our regional delegate. Not only does this help strengthen them, it helps prevent hostile take-overs and invasions. And we don't want those to happen again, do we?

However, I'm more into the Harmony-Supremacy hybrid affinity.

Im more personally for Purity-Supremacy (Though I hate the design for it.)

Also, what did I miss? Sorry, I was strong-armed into ANTICOM.

Harmony is important to an empire; racism is the fault in we world that will tear us apart. Everyone may have there differences, but we should be treated the same. This is the outlook that Ventaion uses above all else.

Hello everyone!

Interesting debate you've got here!
How are you all?

Maybe, if time zones aren't a problem :p

The issue "The Apotheosis of [Leader]" is hilarious if your leader could easily be considered a god. And when you make your country's religion (or one of them) a personality cult.

The Principality of Trotterdam wrote:The problem with equal opportunities is that they don't stay that way for long. Even if you start out totally equal, every failure in your life (whether it's due to lack of skill, lack of drive, simple bad luck, lack of nepotistic connections...) worsens your position to the point that it also makes you less likely to succeed at future endeavors, creating a vicious cycle. And if it didn't, then you would have no incentive to bother ever succeeding at anything, since you'll be just as well-off either way.
Completely eliminating any sort of class differences also seems impractical, unless you go as far as to take all children away from their parents at birth and raising them as equals in a government childcare program. It's an innate pony (and human) desire to want what's best for your children, and people will resent being prevented from pursuing that.
But the real thing? As far as cutie marks are concerned, ponies are born with equal opportunities. They're born with blank flanks. They need to earn their cutie marks themselves. After which, like I said, their opportunities don't stay equal.
Basically, absolute equality is impossible. You can try to reduce inequality though things like welfare, and many countries do, but you need to know your limits. Push too hard and you'll just break stuff.
Sadly, boring practicality says that pretty much all sane nations or going to have rather similar policies, differing only in minor details. There's no simple cure-all that will allow you to be orders of magnitude more equal than everyone else, short of oppressing everyone to be equally poorly-off (canon Starlight's approach).
In the end, stuff that makes life better for everyone is more valuable than just trying to move wealth around. Even most "poor" people in a first-world nation have luxuries that people from a few centuries ago would be jealous of. Science and technology are the true path to salvation.

Wow, I never thought of that.

It's REALLY hard to think of a good alternative to true free-market capitalism.

Think of money as water.

Water can move and change its shape without anyone directly controlling it. This is useful. It's a lot easier to pour liquid water into a cup than to carve a block of ice into the shape of the cup. However, this same fluidity, if left unchecked, can also cause devastating floods.

That's Trotterdam's approach to the economy: we build dams to control and guide our water to keep our people safe, but so long as the dams are not breached we let the water flow where it will. We do not attempt to freeze it, because that would make everything needlessly difficult.

(That's Trotterdam's approach to actual water, too.)

Actually, it's easy.

All you need to do is accept that you're evil and are driving your nation into the ground.

C'mon, it's fun.

Economies are overrated anyway.
