The Social Republic and Scientific Collectives of Frenequesta

The Social Republic and Scientific Collectives of Frenequesta is a nation that occupies some sleepy crossroads of the Pony Lands. It is well-known for its restrictive advertising laws, government-mandated union shops, rich musical and scientific heritage, and its eclectic political system. It is a fairly recent state, having formed from the merger of the human colony of Joplinia-Lambscott and the Pony nation of Neighland, following a century of trade wars, one actual war, and more than its fair share of major environmental disasters.
