The Empire of Angbad is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Morgoth with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.541 billion Angbadians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thangorodrim. The average income tax rate is 79.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Angbadian economy, worth 481 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 189,634 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, military training in Angbad emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, and annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals. 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 16,071st in the world and 596th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 328,383.79 Standard Monetary Units.
