The Pony Union of Maljaratas is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nick Fabian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.791 billion Maljaratasians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ubuzlanbu. The average income tax rate is 59.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maljaratasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,299 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Retail, Pizza Delivery, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 132,721 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a bustling black market for vegetables, the nation's biggest export is stupidity, epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, and the government evicts ethnic minorities by stranding them in the wilderness. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Maljaratas's national animal is the Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

Maljaratas is ranked 168,370th in the world and 90th in Confederacy of Allied States for Most Cultured, scoring 27 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
