The Fiefdom of Mallorn is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 8.399 billion Mallornians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Mallornian economy, worth 50.6 trillion nuts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 6,028 nuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mallorn's national animal is the cuckoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mallorn is ranked 176,058th in the world and 12th in Lothlorien for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.37 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
