The Pony Principality of Equestrian States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Cadance with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.81 billion Equestrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 4,320 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 229,712 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and the aims of top-secret Equestrian science projects revolve around designing the perfect robot woman. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Equestrian States's national animal is the Northern Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Harmonism.

Equestrian States is ranked 158,293rd in the world and 165th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Pro-Market, scoring 21.44 on the Rand Index.
