Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Equestrian Kingdom of Council of Artaeum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Izan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.183 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, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, 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 frighteningly efficient Artaeum Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 3,021 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 296,766 Bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 949,935 per year while the poor average 70,377, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.

Environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, the government spends millions of Bits every year prosecuting spammers, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. 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 7,149th in the world and 30th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 9,762.22 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
