The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.704 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Daturias. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, military spending is on the increase, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Melkor Unchained to be bombproof, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. 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 1st in Arda and 120,415th in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -1,334 Smiles Per Hour (net).
