The Ring of Nenya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 13.631 billion Nenyans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business, outspoken individuals prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Education and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Nenyan economy, worth 417 trillion adamants a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 30,628 adamants, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 101,943 per year while the poor average 6,857, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, books are considered luxuries only available to the incredibly wealthy, most academic research has ground to a halt, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nenya's national animal is the stargazer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Nenya is ranked 34,837th in the world and 1st in Lothlorien for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 14.87 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
