The Most Serene Holy Empire of Nargothond is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Ecthelion Felagund with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.215 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 2,520 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 349,323 Elven Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,936,718 per year while the poor average 31,668, a ratio of 61.2 to 1.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, the single fish caught by Nargothondian fishers last year is cited as evidence of Nargothond's thriving fisheries, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. 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 171,953rd in the world and 8th in Ainulindale for Most Inclusive, scoring 5.37 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
