Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Greater Unicorn Realm of Council of Artaeum is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Dictator Izan with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.929 billion 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicornia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,170 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 313,200 Bits, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

A crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, and bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Council of Artaeum's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Reformed Ponyism.

Council of Artaeum is ranked 187th in The Alliance of Dictators and 118,769th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -5 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
