The Countless Orcs of The Armies of Sauron is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 926 million Armies of Sauron are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barad-dur. The average income tax rate is 60.9%.

The very strong part of Armies of Sauron economy, worth 95.8 trillion Meats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 103,449 Meats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The legal profession considers itself above the law, holidays are regarded as the most miserable time of the year, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Armies of Sauron's national animal is the Orc, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Armies of Sauron is ranked 68,253rd in the world and 29th in Middle Earth for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,397.71 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
