The Lord of The Rings is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sauron with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, enslaved workforce, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.958 billion Ringsians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barad-dr. The average income tax rate is 66.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ringsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,157 trillion Rings a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 96,759 Rings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rings's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Mordor.

The Rings is ranked 108,643rd in the world and 13th in The Hole for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 591.93 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
