The Empire of Angbad is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Morgoth with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.983 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 Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thangorodrim. The average income tax rate is 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Angbadian economy, worth 341 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 172,423 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-pound charge on their phone bill, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. 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 64,604th in the world and 3,903rd in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 86.42 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
