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 notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.894 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, 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 15,868 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 549,209 sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,668,917 per year while the poor average 65,273, a ratio of 40.9 to 1.

The newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', and recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable. 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 193,003rd in the world and 1st in Arda for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -70.71 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
