The Pony Principality of Equestrian States is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Princess Cadance with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.725 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 4,762 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 229,780 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", religion makes people horny, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and more than one company makes the board game Monopoly. 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 2,335th in the world and 4th in Atlantian Oceania for Highest Food Quality, scoring 244.73 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
