The Kingdom of Mirk-wood is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 878 million Mirk-woodians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lothlorien. The average income tax rate is 42.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Mirk-woodian economy, worth 34.9 trillion Mirks a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,694 Mirks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vaccinations are mandatory, the Gallery of Instasnap is the most popular museum in the country, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mirk-wood's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mirk-wood is ranked 62,778th in the world and 5th in North Dakota Is Leader for Highest Poor Incomes, with 31,510.14 Standard Monetary Units.
