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 notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.002 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, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, 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 3,072 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 307,186 Bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 897,414 per year while the poor average 83,037, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Council of Artaeum is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. 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 149,075th in the world and 136th in The Alliance of Dictators for Nudest, with 47.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
