The Holy Empire of The Federation of Mythology is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.148 billion Orcs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Morgal. The average income tax rate is 91.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Orcish economy, worth a remarkable 1,264 trillion Farthings a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,229 Farthings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, the hills are alive with the smell of burning flesh, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Federation of Mythology's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dark Lord.

The Federation of Mythology is ranked 21,632nd in the world and 1st in Forgotten Realms for Most Developed, scoring 81.59 on the Human Development Index.
