The Mountain Song of Dwarf is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fáfnir Longbeard with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.902 billion Dwarves live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dwarf Fortress. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dwarfen economy, worth a remarkable 1,409 trillion ores a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 287,555 ores, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,576,454 per year while the poor average 4,132, a ratio of 623 to 1.

Fáfnir Longbeard's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare ores. Crime is totally unknown. Dwarf's national animal is the Musk Ox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of the Mountain Lord.

Dwarf is ranked 54,583rd in the world and 23rd in Middle Earth for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,176.27 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
