The Kingdom of The Mount Gundabad is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.778 billion Orcs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gundabad. The average income tax rate is 19.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Orc economy, worth 125 trillion Man fleshes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 70,804 Man fleshes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Female smokers cut their hair and don suits to get into male-only clubs, drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into The Mount Gundabad, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, 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 118,900th in the world and 44th in Middle Earth for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 79.38 on the Hayek Index.
