The Matriarchy of Dritta

“For Faust's sake don't answer that!”

Location: Equestria

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Matriarchy of Dritta is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Starlight Shine with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 23.973 billion Drittans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Super Dimensional Fortress Marecross One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Drittan economy, worth a remarkable 3,884 trillion Bits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 162,041 Bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 566,580 per year while the poor average 33,680, a ratio of 16.8 to 1.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, group hugs break out during floor votes, and politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Dritta's national animal is the Parasprite, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Force.

Dritta is ranked 28,342nd in the world and 16th in Equestria for Most Developed, scoring 76.46 on the Human Development Index.
