The Pony Principality of Sunset-Shimmer is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.436 billion Unicorns love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 42.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Unicorn economy, worth 172 trillion Bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,768 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sunset-Shimmer's national animal is the Phoenix.

Sunset-Shimmer is ranked 155,783rd in the world and 56th in Pony Lands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 21,263.67 Standard Monetary Units.

Nicest Citizens: 26,213th
