Middle Earth Guardian

Population6.974 billion


The Colony of Middle Earth Guardian is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.974 billion Middle Earth Guardianians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The strong Middle Earth Guardianian economy, worth 439 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 62,965 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 405,820 per year while the poor average 3,947, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Middle Earth Guardian's national animal is the dog, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Middle Earth Guardian is ranked 13,364th in the world and 2nd in Middle Earth for Most Pro-Market, scoring 97 on the Rand Index.
