The Royal Monarchy of Minas Tyrrith is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Aethelrod with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory vegetarianism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 7.965 billion Dunedains are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunedan City. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Minas Tyrrithian economy, worth 427 trillion Dukats a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Book Publishing. Average income is 53,706 Dukats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, and atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minas Tyrrith's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Polytheism.

Minas Tyrrith is ranked 260,828th in the world and 211th in Caer Sidi for Most Patriotic, with 0.66 flags saluted per person per day.
