Friendship City is a large settlement situated in the Statue of Friendship off the coast of mainland Manehattan.
Frienship city is one of the largest and safest settlements within the Equestrian Wasteland. The city is built inside the massive pre-war monument, the Statue of Friendship, which depicts a pony, holding up a flaming torch. The settlement is governed by a council that oversees the management of the large settlement, access to Friendship city requires a large bridge be extended so ponies on land may enter the town.
Before the WarEdit
Friendship city was originally just a monument that was visited by tourists. Applejack passed the statue as a filly, during her first trip to Manehattan to live and stay with the Apple Family's close relatives, the Oranges.
Due to the slaughter at Arbu, the ponies of Friendship City believed Littlepip to be hostile and denied her entry. Friendship City does take in the foals and two elderly stallions, at Littlepip's insistence and lets them live in their community. Littlepip returns at a later date where she meets the elderly Dashite, Radar. Littlepip also uncovers the traitor, Raspberry Tart, an obese Earth pony mare that planned to let the Enclave enter unopposed.
Friendship City tried to fight against the Enclave's superior technology and equipment, refusing to surrender one of their own citizens i.e, Radar. The settlement was destroyed by the Enclave, during their long-term military operation, Operation Cauterize. Any surviving residents fled into the wasteland or were gunned down by the Enclave's troops.
