The Celestial Imperium of The Alicorns is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Terra with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 20.905 billion Imperials enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equus. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth an astonishing 12,111 trillion Imperial Bits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 a breathtaking 579,358 Imperial Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, the nation is wading into dangerous waters, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, and priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms. Crime is totally unknown. The Alicorns's national animal is the Alicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Harmonism.

The Alicorns is ranked 464th in the world and 1st in Hoshizora for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 20,016.27 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
