The Dystopian Cult of East Mordor is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.034 billion East Mordorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Doom City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.6%.

The frighteningly efficient East Mordorian economy, worth 167 trillion Slaveses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 162,151 Slaveses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 593,864 per year while the poor average 31,372, a ratio of 18.9 to 1.

Three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Mordor's national animal is the Trash, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

East Mordor is ranked 243,447th in the world and 280th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2.86 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
