    1. @mrmattimation I know you're trying to be funny, but they're a post-scarcity meritocracy.

    2. @mrmattimation It seems capitalist since they use money, but I would love to see a communist pony settlement in canon.

      2. @caret7 Just because they use money doesn't mean they're capitalists. Because there are so many privately owned businesses (i.e. Sweet Apple Acres and Sugarcane Corner) that they seem to be capitalist.

        1. @djbronamite Ah, ok. Also, it doesn't seem post-scarcity because Fluttershy had a lot of trouble buying a cherry in Putting Your Hoof Down.

          1. @caret7 Post scarcity doesn't mean that /everything/ is freely available, it just means that everyones basic needs are met. Cherries aren't a basic need.
