The United Men of Minas Arnor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Aragorn II Elessar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.676 billion Minas 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Tirith. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Minas Arnorian economy, worth 237 trillion Castars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 141,910 Castars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 474,690 per year while the poor average 31,535, a ratio of 15.1 to 1.

Long-wed spouses often regret proposals they made when they were twenty, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minas Arnor's national animal is the Great Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Iluvatarism.

Minas Arnor is ranked 273,842nd in the world and 126th in Middle Earth for Most Politically Free, scoring 3 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
