Marshite Ponies

Population10.819 billion

LeaderRegent Applejack


The Republic of Marshite Ponies is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Regent Applejack with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 10.819 billion Marshite Equines enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cloppenhagen. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marshite Poniesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,541 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,482 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, the comic book series 'Regent Applejack and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and you need a signed affidavit from a registered psychiatrist to claim that you have crazy low prices. Crime is totally unknown. Marshite Ponies's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Marshism.

Marshite Ponies is ranked 8,622nd in the world and 13th in Greater Dienstad for Most Cultured, scoring 116 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
