The Holy Blue batpony zombies of Canterlot is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Twilight Sparkle with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 3.61 billion Canterlotians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Canterlotian economy, worth 228 trillion Bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,362 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, Princess Twilight Sparkle can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, soldiers go to war dressed in cassocks and robes, and troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canterlot's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Canterlot is ranked 139,269th in the world and 47th in The League of Conservative Voices for Highest Food Quality, scoring 16.93 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
