Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Legendary Ponymon of Olthar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Princess Celestia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.376 billion Oltharians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Oltharian economy, worth a remarkable 4,732 trillion Bits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 353,802 Bits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,961,553 per year while the poor average 32,074, a ratio of 61.2 to 1.

Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Canterlot as a backdrop, membership in the state-owned Church of Olthar is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned, dinosaur breeders have a yabba-dabba-doo gay old time in Olthar, and prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Olthar's national animal is the Filly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ponyism.

Olthar is ranked 162,612th in the world and 1st in The Bestest Region for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -36.33 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
