The Rogue Nation of The Kicking Pony is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 951 million Kicking Ponyians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Public Transport, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponyville. The average income tax rate is 30.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Kicking Ponyian economy, worth 22.7 trillion gems 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. 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 23,823 gems, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting', and it is widely believed that the first citizen of The Kicking Pony was called 'Wild-eyed Daddy-O'. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Kicking Pony's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Kicking Pony is ranked 137,904th in the world and 53rd in Kezia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 21,097.01 Standard Monetary Units.
