The Benevolent Solar Empire of Peaton is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.77 billion Petonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xanth. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Peatonian economy, worth 932 trillion Fossils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,989 Fossils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peaton's national animal is the Gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Peaton is ranked 15,539th in the world and 2nd in My Little Pony Equestria for Most Developed, scoring 80.23 on the Human Development Index.
