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 barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.204 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 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 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over UnicornsInVorkuta, and suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns. 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 457th in The Black Riders and 113,897th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,352 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
