The Republic of Noldoria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.691 billion Noldor 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 Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gondolin. The average income tax rate is 35.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Noldorin economy, worth a remarkable 1,453 trillion pennies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 124,288 pennies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, anti-government web sites are springing up, conspiracy theorists allege New Gondolin's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. Crime is totally unknown. Noldoria's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Noldoria is ranked 154,204th in the world and 100th in Middle Earth for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.37 Crimes Per Hour.
