I think you want a _complete_ Unicode font, not a generic one.
That's hard: there's no single font that contains all of any
of the various versions of the Unicode standard. Not too mention
that a single, simple glyph for every codepoint wouldn't be enough:
many scripts use different shapes for glyps according to their place
in a word. And Unicode doesn't encode (all of) them.
Anyway, if you might want to try the following fonts:
Arial Unicode (don't know where to get that)
GNU Unifont (czyborra.com/unifont/)
X11's misc fixed (in you XFree86 distribution)
Or you could use pfaedit (pfaedit.sf.net) to add the necessary to any font you
like. Or even, what would be even better, decide to cooperate with
