The Greater Unicorn Realm of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Dictator Izan with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.573 billion Unicorns 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.

The government has the power to seize property at will, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Council of Artaeum, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. 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 186th in The Alliance of Dictators and 110,283rd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -38 on the Enoch Index.
