The Principality of Brilliant Equestria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Princess Brilliant Shimmer with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 18.178 billion Equestrians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,391 trillion crystal bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,579 crystal bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disputed territories across Pony Lands are being claimed by Equestrian college students, retail boutiques encourage citizens to honor their military veterans by purchasing flag-patterned underwear, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brilliant Equestria's national animal is the space carp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Resonance.

Brilliant Equestria is ranked 155,006th in the world and 49th in Pony Lands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 186 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
