The Ancient Order of The Polaris Society is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 34.846 billion Polaris Societyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Polaris Societyian economy, worth 506 trillion polaran credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. Average income is 14,538 polaran credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Polaris Society's national animal is the wraith, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Polaris Society is ranked 228,342nd in the world and 100th in Equestria for Rudest Citizens, with 13.52 Insults Per Minute.
