Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Equestrian Kingdom of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Izan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.974 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicornia. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Artaeum Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,489 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 277,357 Bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,030,846 per year while the poor average 52,435, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, trouble-makers are frequently turned in to the government to be 'recycled', the government is trying to clean up all the rubbish that has washed up on the shores of Bigtopia and Marche Noire, and a government program is underway to revitalize Council of Artaeum's beaches. 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 8th in The Alliance of Dictators and 1,015th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 9 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
