The Elements Forever!
Oh land of blue, unending skies,
Fields green and sparkling snow
A scent of Friendship in the wind
Over crystal mountains below,
To thee we brought our hopes, our dreams,
With thee we stand together,
Our land of peace which proudly bears
The Elements forever!
CHORUS:
Long may you stand, and grace our own
Hearts, minds and our endeavours,
For harmony and our friendship:
The Elements forever!
From far-off lands our heroes came,
Through icy fields and frozen bays,
And conquered windigo and hate,
And their ancient wisdom says:
Protect the weak, defend your rights
And join in love together:
The Hoof, the Wing and Horn divine
And Elements forever!
CHORUS
Oh land where Loyalty abounds,
And Honesty shines straight and true
And the Generous are blessed and praised
By those with Kindness, through and through,
And Laughter rings through hill and dale
Of our Magic land forever,
May our Friendship last eternally!
The Elements forever!
CHORUS

SotD, DoL Part 2: Saddle Arabia
Perhaps the most ‘quintessential’ nation of Dar al-Qamar, Saddle Arabia is a large, mainly desert country located to the south of Buraqid Caliphate in a large region of desert known as Arabia of uncertain etymology. Owing to the very rural nature of the country, and the difficulty even for Earth Ponies in irrigating the land, much of Saddle Arabia remains inhabited primarily by nomadic Camel tribes punctuated by Samawat pegasi in the desert and the occasional Djinn. However, permanent settlements inhabited primarily by Ponies (among them the Asil) do exist in arable areas (usually around the coast or in oases).
Of particular note in Saddle Arabian geography is the Arwah Desert, or the Desert of Souls. Like Equestria’s Everfree Forest, the Arwah Desert is a vast space of untamable desert, where the clouds dissapate beneath the wings of the Samawat and what plants and animals there are grow free of any intervention. The area is largely considered to be cursed by the Sam

SotD, DoL Part 1: The Buraqid Caliphate
On paper, it seems that the Buraqid Caliphate is the most powerful nation of Dar al-Qamar, stretching from al-Fajr in the East to Karkadannistan in the West. The Caliphs style themselves Commander of the Faithful and the Prince of Princes.
Yet, in spite of all this pomp and circumstance, the Caliphs retain surprisingly little power outside the province of Aidenn by the Pishon and Gihon rivers, and the region surrounding Destriascus, leading to Equestrians to generally call the region (and indeed, the ‘entire’ Caliphate) “Buraq”. Due to the difficulty of maintaining regular contacts over such huge an empire, and the fact that administration was largely carried out by hereditary tribes rather than a meritocratic civil service eventually meant that the local Emirs began to build up large, regional blocs that, over time, eventually became de-facto countries that paid only lip-service to the Caliph.
The ancestor of the Buraqid Caliphs was Buraq al-Mukhlis, a Pegasus

Sons of the Desert, Daughters of Luna (Prologue)
Far to the south of Equestria, beyond the realm of Griffons and Deer, indeed, even of the Minotaurs, lies a land of great deserts and sand dunes, a land where the great Jadd Worms swim beneath the sand and where the Camel tribes scrape along for a living. This is a land where the harsh sun beats down upon the parched landscape, whose inhabitants in antiquity long ago turned their prayers to the Moon to protect them from the Sun’s destructive power.
Yet, not all of the lands of al-Qamar are dry and barren desert. Al-Sud, the land of the Stygian River whose banks are black with soil, are studded with ancient Pyramids where the tombs of the ancient Camel kings have rested for untold millenia since their civilisation since fell to dust. In contrast, the banks of the Girthon are green with gardens and farms, and rising from the countryside like a giant jewel in a verdant crown is the great city of Baygdad, where the Buraqid Caliphs entertain the Unicorn scholars and mages in their pur

Oak Complains Aimlessly About Tyrantlestia
I used to (and still do) hate Tyrant Celestia stories with the passion of over a thousand fiery suns. But I don't think I really pieced together exactly why I hated it beyond 'this is so against canon and her character and it's stupid and everywhere and some people genuinely believe it'. Those all still bug me, but I realized exactly what it was. I know the time of Tyrantlestia being so huge has long gone, but I figured it out and I want to share it. Here is why I hate Tyrantlestia: It's simplifying a complex question of morality into 'she must be evil because she did something wrong'.
It's assuming that it has to be black and white. And that is ruining the wonderful story ideas that can be brought up from it.
It's saying that there can't be a good enough reason to do bad things for the greater good. That doing something that has moral ambiguity is evil. Moral ambiguity does not exist in Tyrantlestia stories. It might for other characters, but it's saying that there cannot be an

An Essay on Misanthropy in the MLP Community
I have often heard people assert and complain that there is too much misanthropy in the MLP community. Indeed, there are even groups on this site (two in particular) that have risen in response to such claims of misanthropy. Because of that, I decided to write this essay exploring the reasons why such misanthropy exists, why it persists, why it gets worse, and what can be done to remedy some of it.
To start with, it should be remembered that Equestria is a high fantasy world. In some ways, the high fantasy genre is an escapist genre. It appeals to people looking for a temporary escape from the real world and everything that they consider to be wrong with it. MLP is also a fairytale world populated by a non-human species. Combine these two factors, and it’s a reasonable assumption that you will find a higher percentage of misanthropes in the MLP community than you would in a randomized sample of the human population.
And herein, exists an opportunity. Because of the core values th
