The Dwarven Kingdom of Tyfan Union is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Hrothgar with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, humorless population of 6.116 billion Knurlans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Tyfan Unionian economy, worth 508 trillion Tabloons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 83,146 Tabloons, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's countrysides are littered with landmines due to ongoing family disputes, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, urbanites battle to the death for penthouse apartments, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. Crime is relatively low. Tyfan Union's national animal is the Feldunost, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The One Truth.

Tyfan Union is ranked 108,046th in the world and 61st in Mordor for Fattest Citizens, with 9.16 Obesity Rate.
