The Protectorate of Halls of Mandos is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gimli son of Glóin with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, ban on automobiles, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.141 billion Mandosians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Menegroth. The average income tax rate is 51.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Halls of Mandos economy, worth 153 trillion Rings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,878 Rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, and government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halls of Mandos's national animal is the Balrog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Halls of Mandos is ranked 191,029th in the world and 83rd in Middle Earth for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,134.87 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
