The Mount Gundabad

The Kingdom of The Mount Gundabad is a small, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 40 million Orcs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 8.8%.

The strong Orc economy, worth 2.65 trillion Man fleshes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 66,305 Man fleshes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending is on the increase, nudity is frowned upon, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Mount Gundabad's national animal is the Dark Lord Sauron, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Mount Gundabad is ranked 146,595th in the world and 88th in Middle Earth for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.22 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
