The Most Serene Holy Empire of Nargothond is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Ecthelion Felagund with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.3 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 3,599 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 349,438 Elven Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,926,711 per year while the poor average 32,065, a ratio of 60.1 to 1.

Getting caught with the wrong recipe book can get you locked up for 100 - 500 megaseconds, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, and the world still seems flat to some people in space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 379th in the world and 1st in Wintreath for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 348,739.62 Standard Monetary Units.
