The Most Serene Holy Empire of Nargothond is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Ecthelion Felagund with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, triple-decker prams, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.285 billion Nargothondians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of FOR SALE. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nargothondian economy, worth a remarkable 2,195 trillion Elven Pounds 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 significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 349,294 Elven Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,904,982 per year while the poor average 32,824, a ratio of 58.0 to 1.

The government violently suppresses separatist movements, the government has become increasingly militant, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nargothond's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is WORSHIP YOUR EMPEROR YOU SLAVES.

Nargothond is ranked 440th in the world and 1st in Wintreath for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 24,239.22 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
