The Holy Empire of New Equestria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Viktoria IV with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.304 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 45.3%.

The frighteningly efficient New Equestrian economy, worth 603 trillion Imperial Bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 95,773 Imperial Bits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 455,492 per year while the poor average 11,859, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

Breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, and economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation. 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 18,430th in the world and 1st in The Isolate Imperium of New Equestria for Most Pro-Market, scoring 76.11 on the Rand Index.
