The Empire of Angbad is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Morgoth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.112 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 Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thangorodrim. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Angbadian economy, worth 171 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,806 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, Angbad's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar. 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 133,860th in the world and 7,720th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 53.47 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
