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 remarkable for its parental licensing program, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.258 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, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicornia. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Artaeum Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,210 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 267,621 Bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 994,658 per year while the poor average 50,595, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

An increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, cities are engulfed by smog, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport. 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 4th in The Alliance of Dictators and 408th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 21 on the Hayek Index.
