The Holy Empire of New Equestria is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Viktoria IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.75 billion New Equestrians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canterlot. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.5%.

The frighteningly efficient New Equestrian economy, worth 551 trillion Imperial Bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 95,918 Imperial Bits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 461,651 per year while the poor average 11,612, a ratio of 39.8 to 1.

Photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Empress Viktoria IV, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, and books are so highly regarded in New Equestria that libraries are often revered as holy shrines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Equestria's national animal is the Jack Russell Terrier, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

New Equestria is ranked 99,483rd in the world and 1st in The Isolate Imperium of New Equestira for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 67.04 Workforce Participation Rate.
