The Royal Protectorate of MineLegotipony is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Princess-Governor Octavia the 23rd with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.269 billion MineLegotiponyians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Manehattan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 85.6%.

The frighteningly efficient MineLegotiponyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,265 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 220,585 Bits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,499,713 per year while the poor average 11,852, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, bris parties are all the rage, and the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MineLegotipony's national animal is the Timderdog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Protestant Harmonism.

MineLegotipony is ranked 13,484th in the world and 51st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,210.71 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
