The new millennium came and the Dictator, General Robert Zesich was still in power. He managed to stay in power due to the fact he set up a Parliament in 2002 and held elections for it when ever a revolution seemed to be brewing which was about every two years. Then in August of 2009, during a visit to the nation of Hobit, the General was assassinated and his nephew, Lt. Gen. Michael Torrencio succeeded him. For eight months, the new leader led a reign of terror, first was the burning of the Parliament building, second was the purge of the military hire-ups believed to be aiding rebel forces and finally was the sending of Socialists and Anarchists into Slave camps. He was assassinated by a Senator in May of 2010. He was succeeded by Gen. Thomas Cravents, a Beverian. The people were fed up and wanted Democracy however even more wanted the restoration of the Monarchy, so he granted them the restoration of the King, but he kept the slave camps and kept Parliament closed. Then out of nowhere portals began opening up across Wilconson and small pastel-colored equine began coming out of them. These weren't just horses they were fully thought capable ponies with magic and they were granted settlement and land deep in Wilconson with promises to help Wilconson with a dreadful famine. The Pony Population rose to two million at the end of the year and granted semi-autnomous status with in Wilconsoin.

The large number of Ponies became worrying to not just the Government, but the people. They resented Ponies and barred them from restaurants, hotels, pubs and pools. they hated Zebras, Mules and Griffinths even more. They resented them because they were animals who were given jobs that were performed by humans during an economic crisis no less, "Why should a horse have more opportunities than a man?" they said. It would be a common sight to see a human spit on a Pony or harass it while it was in the city.

However behind closed doors the leaders of the Pony Community, the Pegasus, Cloud Runner, the Unicorn, Aqua Sparkler and the Earth Pony, Butterscotch Sweet were in talks with the Monarch of Wilconson, King Martin II into ousting a the Dictator and establishing a Dual Pony-Human Constitutional Monarchy. Then a leak of files occurred on May 15th and turned into a diplomatic crisis involving the Ponies and the King. The Loyalist(Loyal to the Dictator)Army with out order began opening fire on Pony Settlement of Fillydelpia and and a massacre occurred taking the lives of 173 ponies and 400 wounded and more than a thousand across the nation, but the Ponies fought back and repulsed the Loyalists out of the settlements, the Royalists were to divided over the Pony issue as were the Socialists and Republicans, but they found a common cause in which they worked together to fight the Loyalists out of the country and they succeeded on June 20th.

They began diplomatic talks, but they failed after numerous protests demanding the Ponies to return to their homeland. However talks collapsed when Royalists and Republicans opened fire on numerous Pony settlements on July 1st. The Ponies now a determined and expert fighting force managed to defeat the Royalists at the Battle of Wilconson City and captured the King on August 20th, The Republicans at Port Hoover on July 27th and Socialists at the Battles of Saravichi on July 2nd- August 25th. On September 1st the Humans signed the Treat of Fillydelphia which allowed humans to stay in Wilconson, but many decided to leave due largely devastated land and destroyed cities in which was bustling farmland and huge factories now to long ago. But the Ponies were determined and held elections on September 20th and elected the Revolutionary war hero, Cloud Runner who says he shall return Wilconson to the great nation it was. Only time will tell what this Pony experiment shall become.


November 10th- The Human Settlement of New Torrencio suffers a arson attack and luckily no one dies, but five homes are destroyed and fourteen are badly damaged.

November 15th- Scandal rocks the Prime Minister's office as a corruption charges are lobbed against the Prime Minister who is believed to of taken bribes from the munitions company, Hoofvana in return to access for government documents and land.

November 17th NPP members and PLP members clash at a Ponyist Labour Party rally leaving four ponies gravely injured.

November 22nd- Corruption charges are withdrawn as the Ponyist Party breathes a sigh of relief with elections drawing near, but confidence in the government is shaken considerably.

November 24th- Parliament despite concerns from the local populace is dissolved to make way for elections.

November 26th- A Hoofvana Munitions Factory is robbed and over several hundred rifles and several thousand rounds of ammunition were stolen.

November 27th- A NPP Rally is held in Equine Square as a massive turn out of over a thousand ponies greatly worries the government and a another rally held in Trottleham for the PLP turns out with a similar number of ponies.
