The Equestrian Paradise of Wet Ponies is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 689 million Wet Ponies are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wet And Soaked Pony economy, worth 48.1 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,741 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small shoes often wash up on the beach, pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, and films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wet Ponies's national animal is the Pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wet Ponies is ranked 53,986th in the world and 61st in Confederacy of Allied States for Most Developed, scoring 64.1 on the Human Development Index.
