Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.344 billion Ardans 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Daturias. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Melkor Unchainedian economy, worth an astonishing 16,211 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 552,460 sovereigns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,879,302 per year while the poor average 119,715, a ratio of 15.7 to 1.

Pollsters are out of a job as elections have been cancelled, penal labor is a de facto death sentence, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Melkor Unchained's national animal is the ratel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Melkor Unchained is ranked 166,417th in the world and 4,282nd in Balder for Longest Average Lifespans, with 21.68 Years.
