Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.412 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 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 14,832 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 541,078 sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,462,460 per year while the poor average 72,682, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

The military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and the country is preparing for war. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 128,442nd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -15 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
