The Last Unicorn

Population362 million


The Free Land of The Last Unicorn is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 362 million Unicorns love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 53.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Unicornish economy, worth 15.3 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 42,385 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leader can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, and The Last Unicorn recently decided against having a capital city. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Last Unicorn's national animal is the swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Last Unicorn is ranked 151,449th in the world and 72nd in Christmas for Lowest Crime Rates, with 60.18 law-abiding acts per hour.
