Equestria is the fictional world in which the G4 Ponies live. According to the episode "Hearth's Warming Eve", Equestria was founded jointly by the three pony tribes: the Pegasi, the Unicorns, and the Earth Ponies, who arrived in the area after fleeing their perpetually snowbound lands. Equestria is currently under the joint rule of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna. According to the book "Journal of the Two Sisters", the sisters took power at the invitation of Starswirl the Bearded, due to their status as Alicorns, which meant they possessed traits of all three races. During their rule, Celestia and Luna would face a number of threats to Equestria, including Tirek and Discord.
Equestria appears to be one of many pony countries, as ambassadors from other lands have been seen visiting. It is shown to be a fairly large country, with a number of settlements. Some cities have a majority of one type of pony; for example, Canterlot appears to be home to mostly Unicorns, while Cloudsdale houses solely Pegasi.
