Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Equestrian Kingdom of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Izan with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.664 billion Artaeum Equestrians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicornia. Income tax is unheard of.

The thriving Artaeum Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,952 trillion Bits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 254,808 Bits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,385,911 per year while the poor average 24,086, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, bicyclists are banned from major roads, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Council of Artaeum's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Reformed Ponyism.

Council of Artaeum is ranked 8th in The Alliance of Dictators and 820th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 3,020.197 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
