The Kingdom under the Mountain

Population26 million

CurrencyGold Coin

The Dominion of The Kingdom under the Mountain is a small, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and frequent executions. The hard-working, cynical population of 26 million Dwarves are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.6%.

The strong Dwarvish economy, worth 1.28 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 49,231 Gold Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 160,105 per year while the poor average 11,406, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Critical thinking is grounds for expulsion from university, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving". Crime is moderate. The Kingdom under the Mountain's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Kingdom under the Mountain is ranked 182,396th in the world and 127th in Middle Earth for Most Inclusive, scoring 92.89 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.

Largest Mining Sector: 13th in the region
