The Eastern Kingdom of Dwarven Mines is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Feleki the old with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.464 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 Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of K‚r-Kartagit. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dwarven economy, worth a remarkable 2,601 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,709 Red Khaz‚ds, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, if a tree falls in the forest King Feleki the old is personally notified, builders across Dwarven Mines are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Dwarven Navy. 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 164,196th in the world and 99th in Middle Earth for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.13 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
