The Perilous Journey of The Fellowship of the Ring is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gandalf the Grey with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 12.123 billion Fellowship of the Ringians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rivendel. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fellowship of the Ringian economy, worth a remarkable 1,357 trillion Towers a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 111,949 Towers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over The Fellowship of the Ring, scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, and The Fellowship of the Ring is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Fellowship of the Ring's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Eru Ilúvatar.

The Fellowship of the Ring is ranked 160,207th in the world and 3rd in Divergent for Fattest Citizens, with 6.3 Obesity Rate.
