The Greater Unicorn Realm of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Dictator Izan with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.023 billion 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.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, and the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers. 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 12th in The Alliance of Dictators and 769th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 16 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
