The Greater Unicorn Realm of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Dictator Izan with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.736 billion Unicorns are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicornia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Unicornian economy, worth a remarkable 2,099 trillion Realmsbits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 311,746 Realmsbits, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of Realmsbits are being blown on orbital weapons development, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Council of Artaeum's national animal is the Crop, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Church of the Alicorns.

Council of Artaeum is ranked 16th in The Alliance of Dictators and 2,325th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 319 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
