The Morgoth

The Dark Lord of The Morgoth is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.864 billion Morgothians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 39.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Morgothian economy, worth 18.9 trillion skulls 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. 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 10,161 skulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Morgoth's national animal is the dragon.

The Morgoth is ranked 199,524th in the world and 131st in Middle Earth for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.37 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
