The island is home to around hundren people or so, most are found in the only inhabited village found on the island, Frost Fall. This town is located on the far Southern tip of the island in a valley near a bay. This village is much like Ponyville, however the buildings here aredesign to withstand the harsh winters. The ponies of Frost Fall, although aware of Equestia, are too far to be influenced by the Sun and Moon Princesses. Instead they are govern by their own Chief and worship the Winter and Summer Princesses.
