Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Equestrian Kingdom of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Izan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.818 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 2,986 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. Average income is an amazing 304,205 Bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 939,292 per year while the poor average 76,009, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

The welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, and most citizens in Council of Artaeum are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. 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 11,814th in the world and 49th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 55.01 Whatever.
