Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Legendary Ponymon of Olthar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Celestia with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, frequent executions, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.63 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, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 4,880 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 358,102 Bits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,585,296 per year while the poor average 15,836, a ratio of 163 to 1.

This year's hottest seller is plenary indulgence, prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, and truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills. 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 4,988th in the world and 1st in The Bestest Region for Most Devout, with 2,868.54 Prayers Per Hour.
