Minas Ithil in the Morgul Vale

The Dominion of Minas Ithil in the Morgul Vale is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 18.431 billion Minas Ithil in the Morgul Valeans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.8%.

The strong Minas Ithil in the Morgul Valean economy, worth a remarkable 1,375 trillion Man Fleshes 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, 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 74,628 Man Fleshes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 268,903 per year while the poor average 14,810, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minas Ithil in the Morgul Vale's national animal is the Orc, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Minas Ithil in the Morgul Vale is ranked 13,076th in the world and 1st in Minas Morgul for Highest Economic Output, with 1,375 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
