The Principality of Shimmering Equestria is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.107 billion Equestrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Shimmering Equestrian economy, worth 52.2 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 24,778 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and Shimmering Equestria has designated Canterlot as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shimmering Equestria's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shimmering Equestria is ranked 178,707th in the world and 17th in Pony Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 41.23 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
