The Eastern Kingdom of Dwarven Mines is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Feleki the old with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, enslaved workforce, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.072 billion Dwarves 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 Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of K‚r-Kartagit. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dwarven economy, worth a remarkable 2,806 trillion Red Khaz‚ds a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 214,699 Red Khaz‚ds, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, babysitters are a thing of the past, and military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dwarven Mines's national animal is the Feathered Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is worshiping the Vala AulŽ.

Dwarven Mines is ranked 24,198th in the world and 11th in Middle Earth for Most Inclusive, scoring 131.26 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
