United States of Gondor

LeaderKeeper of the Realm Aramin


The Realm of United States of Gondor is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Keeper of the Realm Aramin with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.28 billion Gondorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Tirith. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gondorian economy, worth 384 trillion Tharanis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 117,265 Tharanis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, Keeper of the Realm Aramin's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime is totally unknown. United States of Gondor's national animal is the Pider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Valarism.

United States of Gondor is ranked 17,566th in the world and 52nd in Cape of Good Hope for Most Developed, scoring 85.81 on the Human Development Index.
