The Eastern Kingdom of Dwarven Mines is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Feleki the old with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 11.871 billion Dwarves 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 Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of K‚r-Kartagit. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dwarven economy, worth a remarkable 2,465 trillion Red Khaz‚ds a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 207,705 Red Khaz‚ds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, children are raised bilingual from an early age, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and Dwarves seem to be catching more chills. 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 166,762nd in the world and 91st in Middle Earth for Most Politically Free, scoring 36.38 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
