The United Men of Minas Arnor is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Aragorn II Elessar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, avowedly heterosexual populace, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.582 billion Arnorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Tirith. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arnorian economy, worth 884 trillion Castars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 193,026 Castars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and an opal a day keeps the negative thoughts at bay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minas Arnor's national animal is the Great Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Iluvatarism.

Minas Arnor is ranked 300,256th in the world and 121st in Middle Earth for Most Inclusive, scoring 7.2 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
