The Celestial Imperium of The Alicorns is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Terra with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 17.729 billion Imperials hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equus. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 9,623 trillion Imperial Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 542,812 Imperial Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Trouble-makers are frequently turned in to the government to be 'recycled', war vets look after war animals, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, and the nation leads Hoshizora in per capita stalking. Crime is totally unknown. The Alicorns's national animal is the Alicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Harmonism.

The Alicorns is ranked 86,466th in the world and 5th in Hoshizora for Highest Drug Use, scoring 75.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
