The Harmonic Union of Equestrian States is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Princess Celestia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.727 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 large, 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 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 5,196 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 228,655 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. 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 Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Harmonism.

Equestrian States is ranked 242,475th in the world and 177th in Atlantian Oceania for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.36 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
