The Pony Principality of Equestrian States is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Princess Cadance with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.73 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. 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 3,860 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 230,751 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves. 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 1,205th in the world and 1st in Atlantian Oceania for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,838.44 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
