The Valley of Living Death of Imlad Morgul is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 15.184 billion living ghosts are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and International Aid. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant ghostly economy, worth 293 trillion non-drinking waters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 19,321 non-drinking waters, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imlad Morgul's national animal is the Living Death, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Imlad Morgul is ranked 99,315th in the world and 2nd in Minas Morgul for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,575.23 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
