OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.581 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Daturias. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, Melkor Unchained is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, the country is preparing for war, and emigration to countries with labor laws is all the rage. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Melkor Unchained's national animal is the ratel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the sovereign.

Melkor Unchained is ranked 2nd in Arda and 92,501st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10 on the Hayek Index.
