Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.04 billion Ardans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. 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 15,947 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 549,153 sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,668,646 per year while the poor average 65,266, a ratio of 40.9 to 1.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Daturias, and widespread voter apathy has been credited to allegations that all candidates are puppets of Konrad Althalon IV. 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 179,607th in the world and 1st in Arda for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 6.91 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
