You mean Ponyville's health care and educational system, right? Yes, of course! ...that, too. *cough* I can't help it, she just looks so cute when she pops up in the background like that. "Yay" for being original!
Indeed; for instance, the office of Mayor of London goes back to the year 1189, over 800 years ago. The current Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II, has been ruling for 60 years or so, as part of a monarchy which goes back nearly eleven centuries to the year 927. Even earlier, to 519 AD (1,493 years ago), if you count the early ruling monarchs of Wessex - the later Wessex monarchs expanded to rule much or all of England.
