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 renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, enslaved workforce, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.832 billion Artaeum Equestrians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicornia. Income tax is unheard of.

The thriving Artaeum Equestrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,027 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 258,815 Bits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,311,724 per year while the poor average 28,328, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in Council of Artaeum after the ban on emigration was lifted, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. 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 18th in The Alliance of Dictators and 998th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 10 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
