The Human-Pony Alliance of Zachtia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zimothy Wright with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.208 billion Zachtians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luxington. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zachtian economy, worth a remarkable 5,404 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 314,057 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, angry men scowl at each other across chess boards, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and escalators are avoided at all costs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zachtia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zachtia is ranked 65th in the world and 1st in Equestria for Most Pacifist, with 394.73 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
