The Principality of Brilliant Equestria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Princess Brilliant Shimmer with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 12.221 billion Equestrians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,735 trillion crystal bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 142,023 crystal bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Disputed territories across Pony Lands are being claimed by Equestrian college students, retail boutiques encourage citizens to honor their military veterans by purchasing flag-patterned underwear, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brilliant Equestria's national animal is the space carp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Resonance.

Brilliant Equestria is ranked 73,703rd in the world and 17th in Pony Lands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 979.5 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
