The First Galactic Empire of UnicornsInVorkuta is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Mother of Dragons with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.832 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, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

The criminal underworld is awash with sausage smuggling, underground copulation clubs have sprung up in major cities, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled UnicornsInVorkuta with a very polite populace, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout UnicornsInVorkuta after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. 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 337th in The Black Riders and 108,608th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -18 on the Hayek Index.
