A Carousel Pony

Population16.823 billion


The Kaleidoscope World of A Carousel Pony is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.823 billion Carousel Ponyians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of International Aid, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.6%.

The strong Carousel Ponyian economy, worth 779 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 46,314 Pounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 449,053 per year while the poor average 230, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. A Carousel Pony's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

A Carousel Pony is ranked 106,709th in the world and 39th in Pony Lands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 53.85 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
