The Empire of Angbad is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Morgoth with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.629 billion Angbadians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thangorodrim. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Angbadian economy, worth 780 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 214,989 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, the fate of the world literally rests on Morgoth's fingers, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Angbad's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Angbad is ranked 85,561st in the world and 3,770th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 55.59 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
