The Five Kingdoms of Melkor Unchained is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Konrad Althalon IV with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 30.966 billion Ardans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Daturias. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Melkor Unchainedian economy, worth an astonishing 17,277 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 557,960 sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,318,480 per year while the poor average 87,904, a ratio of 26.4 to 1.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, bailiffs must face down a fusillade of depleted uranium rounds, and minority children find the right answer in school tests is always the most insulting one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Melkor Unchained's national animal is the ratel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Melkor Unchained is ranked 172nd in the world and 5th in Lazarus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 22,025.83 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
