A Balrog

Population3.662 billion

The Balrog of A Balrog is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.662 billion balrogs are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 73.9%.

The large but underdeveloped balrog economy, worth 113 trillion skulls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 30,921 skulls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending recently hit a new high, organ donation is compulsory, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Balrog's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

A Balrog is ranked 63,176th in the world and 41st in Middle Earth for Most Inclusive, scoring 107.82 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
