The Royal District of Mare County is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.82 billion Ponies are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponyville. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pony economy, worth 547 trillion Equestrian Bits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,541 Equestrian Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Pony politicians, there's no representation without taxation, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime is totally unknown. Mare County's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mare County is ranked 121,845th in the world and 47th in Equestria for Most Pro-Market, scoring 28.56 on the Rand Index.
