Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.726 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, 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 16,427 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 552,615 sovereigns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,895,895 per year while the poor average 118,221, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

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, euthanasia is legal, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. 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 66th in the world and 1st in Osiris for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 61,357.27 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
