The Most Serene Holy Empire of Nargothond is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Ecthelion Felagund with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.34 billion Nargothondians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of FOR SALE. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nargothondian economy, worth a remarkable 5,779 trillion Elven Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 353,700 Elven Pounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,308,775 per year while the poor average 3,234, a ratio of 1,022 to 1.

Exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, heavily-armed commandos play rock-paper-scissors over whether to execute criminals and foreign visitors, Nargothondian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nargothond's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is WORSHIP YOUR EMPEROR YOU SLAVES.

Nargothond is ranked 310th in the world and 1st in Wintreath for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 23,992.74 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
