The Eternal Ascendancy of Menelmacar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Elentári Sirithil nos Fëanor with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 37.786 billion Menelmacari enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vinyatírion. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Menelmacari economy, worth an astonishing 13,438 trillion Menelmacari credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 355,642 Menelmacari credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, and new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Menelmacar's national animal is the Great Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Menelmacar is ranked 1,525th in the world and 1st in Tareldanore for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 9,438.17 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
