The Greater Unicorn Realm of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Dictator Izan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.166 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.

Vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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 3rd in The Alliance of Dictators and 256th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 404 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
