Southern Numenor

Population3.655 billion

LeaderElros Tar-Minyatur

AnimalSabertooth Tiger

The Republic of Southern Numenor is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Elros Tar-Minyatur with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.655 billion Southern Numenorians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armenolos. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Numenorian economy, worth 701 trillion Castars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,950 Castars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Numenor's national animal is the Sabertooth Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Iluvatar.

Southern Numenor is ranked 1,095th in the world and 35th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,966.45 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
