OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Greater Unicorn Realm of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Dictator Izan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.455 billion Unicorns are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicornia. The average income tax rate is 100%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, Council of Artaeum's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Council of Artaeum's national animal is the Crop, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Church of the Alicorns, and its currency is the Realmsbit.

Council of Artaeum is ranked 13th in The Alliance of Dictators and 868th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 13 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
