“All of Arda will be mine. There is no hope in the West.”The Dark Lord Malkir
Regional Influence: Envoy
The Dark Lord of Malkir is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Dark Lord Malkir with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.363 billion Malkirans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angbad. The average income tax rate is 1.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Malkiran economy, worth a remarkable 1,093 trillion Slaves a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 171,801 Slaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.
Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, police are arresting costumed characters at comic book conventions, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Malkir's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of Melkor.
