New Canterlot Wasteland

Population238 million


The Dictatorship of New Canterlot Wasteland is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 238 million New Canterlot Wastelandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 58.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient New Canterlot Wastelandian economy, worth 10.4 trillion Bottlecaps 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. 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 43,654 Bottlecaps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to New Canterlot Wasteland City to enjoy their national art, legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving", Leader's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Canterlot Wasteland's national animal is the Pony, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

New Canterlot Wasteland is ranked 246,924th in the world and 347th in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -9.64 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
