Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Equestrian Kingdom of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Izan with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.414 billion Artaeum Equestrians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 thriving Artaeum Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,864 trillion Bits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 251,492 Bits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,168,390 per year while the poor average 32,531, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

All streets are privately owned toll roads, protests are prohibited from blocking traffic, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging. 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 31st in The Alliance of Dictators and 3,514th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 113 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
