Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Equestrian Kingdom of Council of Artaeum is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Izan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.814 billion Artaeum Equestrians 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."

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicornia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Artaeum Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 3,333 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 308,274 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A vast monorail network carries people all over the country, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools. 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 664th in the world and 11th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Avoided, scoring 1,748.21 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
