The Armed Shamkhalate of Eldurgoth is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Shamkhal Ignatius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, rum-swilling pirates, and museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.517 billion Eldurgothics 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bāb al-Hadid. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eldurgothic economy, worth a remarkable 1,388 trillion Naxars a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 213,082 Naxars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice, several inches are being added to first class seating, government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek, and for just a few extra Naxars Eldurgothics can get new driving records with their new cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eldurgoth's national animal is the Mountain Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hocherlan Worship.

Eldurgoth is ranked 27,564th in the world and 6th in Montealba for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 278,785 Standard Monetary Units.
