Equestrian Commonwealth

Population7.114 billion

LeaderPrincess Twilight


The Constitutional Monarchy of Equestrian Commonwealth is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Princess Twilight with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.114 billion Equines enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Equestrian economy, worth 730 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,710 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Princess Twilight's majority, and political cartoons depicting Princess Twilight's face on a Fox's buttocks are selling like hotcakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Equestrian Commonwealth's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Equestrian Commonwealth is ranked 21,647th in the world and 1,069th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 79.28 on the Human Development Index.
