The Colony of Unicorn New England is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Unicorn population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 634 million Unicorn New Englandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rainbow City. The average income tax rate is 29.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Unicorn New Englandian economy, worth 27.4 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,143 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Gay men commonly complain about their time of the month, Unicorn New England has designated Rainbow City as its capital city, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Unicorn New England's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Unicorn New England is ranked 115,519th in the world and 64th in Shinka for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 67.04 on the Hayek Index.
