Population3.266 billion



The Empire of Angbad is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Morgoth with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.266 billion Angbadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thangorodrim. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Angbadian economy, worth 672 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 205,855 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Governments opposing Angbad are beset by rebels, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Angbad's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Angbad is ranked 124,570th in the world and 6,908th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 12.33 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
