The Commonwealth of The Black Horns is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Armaetus with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 900 million Black Horn Folk are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashbourne. The average income tax rate is 50.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Black Hornsian economy, worth 113 trillion Trepyas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,285 Trepyas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, and people say chess victor Armaetus can kill you with mind-bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Black Horns's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Black Horns is ranked 116,571st in the world and 276th in Forest for Most Politically Free, scoring 27 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
