The Ered Engrin

CurrencyMithril Coin

The Golden Halls of The Ered Engrin is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Durin VII with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.523 billion Dwarves hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khazad-Dm. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ered Engrinian economy, worth 540 trillion Mithril Coins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,503 Mithril Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The NHS is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them. Crime is totally unknown. The Ered Engrin's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Ered Engrin is ranked 73,985th in the world and 3,941st in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 19.58 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
