Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Galactic Empire of Modern Gondor is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Emperor Tyberius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.247 billion Gondorians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Anor. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The Gondorian economy, worth 669 trillion Galactic Credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 127,686 Galactic Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Modern Gondor's national animal is the Saber-toothed tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is atheism.

Modern Gondor is ranked 3,680th in Balder and 126,021st in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 7 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
