The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.136 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 receive no funds. 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 14,251 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 545,277 sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,533,269 per year while the poor average 70,533, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

The nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, and billions of sovereigns are being blown on orbital weapons development. 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 116,227th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -520 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
