The Theocracy of Angamando is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.339 billion Angamandoans 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angband. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.8%.

The Angamandoan economy, worth 273 trillion silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 82,059 silvers, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, police officers catch up on their paperwork while handing their caseload to PIs, people's charity begins and ends at home, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Angamando's national animal is the gorcrow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Angamando is ranked 202,701st in the world and 27th in Mordor for Fattest Citizens, with 7.62 Obesity Rate.
