The Most Serene Holy Empire of Nargothond is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Ecthelion Felagund with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.778 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, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 2,717 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 349,378 Elven Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,937,022 per year while the poor average 31,673, a ratio of 61.2 to 1.

People of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure', explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase, getting caught with the wrong recipe book can get you locked up for 100 - 500 megaseconds, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. 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 24,495th in the world and 4th in Ainulindale for Most Developed, scoring 70.93 on the Human Development Index.
