The Mourning Candles of Novaya Equestria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Funeral Committee with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 17.526 billion Novaya Equestrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novaya Canterlot. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Novaya Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 6,304 trillion Candles a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 359,739 Candles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Darknessdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novaya Equestria's national animal is the Darkness, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mournism.

Novaya Equestria is ranked 177,891st in the world and 10th in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.38 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
