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 compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.61 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.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. 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 209th in The Alliance of Dictators and 111,794th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -29 on the Hayek Index.
