The First Galactic Empire of UnicornsInVorkuta is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Mother of Dragons with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.345 billion UnicornsInVorkutans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Augustgrad. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

Drunk drivers are sentenced to death, the government is cracking down on subversive groups, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. UnicornsInVorkuta's national animal is the Hydra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, its national religion is Imperialism, and its currency is the Dragon.

UnicornsInVorkuta is ranked 569th in The Black Riders and 112,478th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,352 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
