The Empire of Angbad is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Morgoth with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.931 billion Angbadians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thangorodrim. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Angbadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,462 trillion Angbadian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 246,589 Angbadian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas", tourists call Angbadian beach towns "the fine coastline", history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper. 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 84,660th in the world and 4,345th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 65.9 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
