“Fire In The Darkness”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Empire of Angbad is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Morgoth with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.806 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thangorodrim. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Angbadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,404 trillion Angbadian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 241,955 Angbadian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. 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.
