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 renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.564 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 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 16,335 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 552,543 sovereigns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,879,584 per year while the poor average 119,733, a ratio of 15.7 to 1.

Organ donation is compulsory, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, and euthanasia is legal. 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 64,302nd in the world and 2,112th in Balder for Most Conservative, scoring 50.77 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
