Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 30.366 billion Ardans 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Daturias. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Melkor Unchainedian economy, worth an astonishing 16,762 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 552,020 sovereigns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,032,851 per year while the poor average 105,887, a ratio of 19.2 to 1.

Military spending is on the increase, life expectancy is way down but posthuman perfectionism is way up, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Melkor Unchained's national animal is the ratel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Melkor Unchained is ranked 163,596th in the world and 4,673rd in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -73.35 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
