The Fluttershy-worshipping state of NewLeaf is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fluttershy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.356 billion Ponies enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Naturalis. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient pony economy, worth a remarkable 1,184 trillion Unis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,027 Unis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime is totally unknown. NewLeaf's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Equestrianism.

NewLeaf is ranked 167,767th in the world and 6,243rd in Lazarus for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -20.17 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
