Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Equestrian Kingdom of Council of Artaeum is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Izan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.354 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 3,140 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 rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 303,350 Bits, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Millions of Bits have been thrown into a project to find the cure for Mad Phoenix Disease, governments opposing Council of Artaeum are beset by rebels, the government provides its citizenry with the same mass produced rations, and gambling is outlawed. 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 88,446th in the world and 104th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37.56 on the Rand Index.
