The Underground Fortress of Utumno is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The First Dark Lord Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.446 billion Slave of Melkors 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Iron Hall. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.0%.

The frighteningly efficient one of Melkor's Slaves economy, worth a remarkable 4,411 trillion Iron crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 268,216 Iron crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,034,433 per year while the poor average 9,874, a ratio of 206 to 1.

Troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean, the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, Brasilistan is being evacuated after its designation as 'Test Zone 1 - Nuclear', and the nation is weighing the price of victory following a nuclear strike. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Utumno's national animal is the Balrog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Melkorism.

Utumno is ranked 217,669th in the world and 32nd in Mordor for Most Politically Free, scoring 3.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
