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 renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, vat-grown people, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.019 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 2,070 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 258,176 Bits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,279,407 per year while the poor average 29,542, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

The nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, the country is preparing for war, and the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular. 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 173rd in The Alliance of Dictators and 128,854th in the world for Most Inclusive, scoring -345 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
