United States of Gondor

The Realm of United States of Gondor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Keeper of the Realm Aramin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.274 billion Gondorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Tirith. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gondorian economy, worth 383 trillion Tharanis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 117,265 Tharanis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, Keeper of the Realm Aramin's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime is totally unknown. United States of Gondor's national animal is the Pider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Valarism.

United States of Gondor is ranked 116,408th in the world and 111th in Cape of Good Hope for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 32.45 Effective Tax Rate.
