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 7.79 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.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. 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 360th in The Black Riders and 111,667th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,324 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
