Manehattan

Population3.439 billion

The City of Manehattan is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.439 billion Ponies live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Healthcare, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The very strong Manehattanian economy, worth 167 trillion Bits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 48,701 Bits, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

There is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, supervisors in Manehattan commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, and businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Manehattan's national animal is the Rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Manehattan is ranked 126,162nd in the world and 78th in Equestria for Most Influential, scoring 14 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
