Balin Lord of Moria

The Watchfires of Balin Lord of Moria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.184 billion Balin Lord of Morians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Balin Lord of Morian economy, worth 704 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,013 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balin Lord of Moria's national animal is the Death's-head Hawkmoth, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Balin Lord of Moria is ranked 74,853rd in the world and 1st in Moria for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,457.73 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
