The Celestial Imperium of The Alicorns is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Terra with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.364 billion Imperials enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equus. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 6,548 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 Soda Sales. 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 an amazing 455,914 Imperial Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to The Alicorns, Imperial watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, and billions of Imperial Bits are spent to take high-quality photos of the Chimera Nebula. Crime is totally unknown. The Alicorns's national animal is the Chimera, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Sanctioned Faiths.

The Alicorns is ranked 7,996th in the world and 5th in Hoshizora for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 7,028.63 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
