The One Ring of My precious is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Smeagol with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.89 billion My preciousians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ring. The average income tax rate is 67.7%.

The frighteningly efficient My preciousian economy, worth a remarkable 2,642 trillion Rings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 115,444 Rings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

My preciousian political exiles populate the near abroad, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, and the nation's image rights are the strictest in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. My precious's national animal is the trout, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is The One Ring.

My precious is ranked 110,008th in the world and 2nd in Cars for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.46 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
