  1. This question used to seem like it had an obvious answer: Monarchy right? I mean the rulers name Is Princess Celestia. But a lot of canon has been added to the show that the answer is much more blurry now. First Argument: A monarchy is differentiated from other government types because the ruler is chosen from heredity. But who was the ruler before Celestia? Discord, Celestia took that power away from Discord, with weapons, the elements of harmony. Yes, they were colorful rainbow weapons, but a rose by... well you get the idea. Celestia took that power from Discord through a military takeover, not heredity. This could mean that in realty Equestria could be a Dictatorship, or Despotism. "Dictators usually resort to force to gain despotic political power"(britannica.com). This is exactly what Celestia did. Yes, the people rejoiced and life was better, but that doesn't change the fact she did it. BUT! A point could be made for the other side too. Monarchies aren't required to be ruled absolutely. "monarchies are not necessarily authoritarian; the enlightened absolutists of the Enlightenment were monarchs who allowed various freedoms"(newworldencyclopedia.org). Celestia seems to give out much of her power to local authorities (i.e. Mayors). Also, a few military generals traded Dictator in for a name better suited for monarchies. An example would be after Napoleons successful coup, he became an Emperor. (I'm not going to cite that because its so easy to confirm) Another Point: "Many monarchs once claimed the right to rule by the will of a deity"(newworldencyclopedia.org). Celestia isn't just ruling on behalf of a deity, she is the diety. This could be evidence enough that Equestria is a Monarchy but also... ... that it is a Theocracy. However, theocracies have always been ruled by religious leaders, NOT gods (for obvious reason). So this point may or may not hold value depending on how you define it. * * * These are my notes on possible government types for Equestria's possible governments. Needless to say, I overanalyze the crap out of cartoon ponies. You may notice that I never said one answer definitively. I want to see what you guys think Equestria's Governmental type truly is. Post your thoughts below.
  2. So yeah what do you think insert dictators name here would say if he was introduced to FIM and the concept of being a brony?
  3. I see so many people that seem to think Celestia's some kind of tyrant. I've seen the Trollestia joke used to many times, and it's really my least favorite brony joke. So, I ask of you this, readers. Do you really believe Celestia is a tyrant? Do you think Celestia's a troll? And if you do or don't, do you enjoy the Trollestia joke anyways?
