The Empire of Angbad is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Morgoth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.151 billion Angbadians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thangorodrim. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Angbadian economy, worth 910 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 219,256 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and women across the country are tying the knot. 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.

Angbad is ranked 98,334th in the world and 4,962nd in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 53.64 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
