The Holy Empire of Equus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 41.51 billion Equuans 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chevallia. The average income tax rate is 7.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Equusian economy, worth a remarkable 5,088 trillion taons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 122,593 taons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime is totally unknown. Equus's national animal is the fire-breathing Equuan dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Equus is ranked 153,687th in the world and 41st in Wysteria for Most Average, scoring 34.16 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
