Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.501 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 14,288 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 539,166 sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,453,755 per year while the poor average 72,425, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

Military spending is on the increase, judges are all-powerful, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. 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 1st in Arda and 140th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 15 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
