The New Canterlot Republic of Littlepip is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.651 billion Equestrians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shattered Hoof Ridge. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Republican economy, worth a remarkable 1,500 trillion solarbits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 95,857 solarbits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Littlepip's national animal is the bloodwing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Littlepip is ranked 14,533rd in the world and 4th in The Trunk of a Pontiac Tempest for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 7,226.46 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
