The Pony Principality of Princess Luna is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The democratic, devout population of 18.399 billion Ponies enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coltchester. The average income tax rate is 85.4%.

The all-consuming Principalitan economy, worth a remarkable 1,382 trillion Silver Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 75,134 Silver Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Drive-by spoilers are an increasingly common crime, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times, and worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Princess Luna's national animal is the Vampire Fruit Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox Harmonism.

Princess Luna is ranked 164,427th in the world and 40th in Pony Lands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -15.58 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
