The Empire of Angbad is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Morgoth with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.646 billion Angbadians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thangorodrim. The average income tax rate is 62.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Angbadian economy, worth 268 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,401 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, the Department of Reduction of Bureaucratic Red Tape has set up a working committee to investigate its own excessive paperwork, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets. 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 104,219th in the world and 5,205th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 46.67 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
