The Eternal Ascendancy of Menelmacar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Elentári Sirithil nos Fëanor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 40.175 billion Menelmacari hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vinyatírion. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Menelmacari economy, worth an astonishing 14,310 trillion Menelmacari credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 356,197 Menelmacari credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and helicopter parenting is on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Menelmacar's national animal is the Great Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Menelmacar is ranked 1,661st in the world and 1st in Tareldanore for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.63 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
