The Equestrian Card Funnel of UnicornSanity is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Twilight Sparkle with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.871 billion UnicornSanityians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponyville. The average income tax rate is 20.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient UnicornSanityian economy, worth 52.6 trillion 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. 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 28,122 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's children are known for being even more apathetic and cynical than their parents, funding for education has been redirected into the military, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. UnicornSanity's national animal is the Pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

UnicornSanity is ranked 30,733rd in the world and 90th in Primitiveness for Most Beautiful Environments, with 813.36 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
