The Republic of Alqulonde is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Olwë with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.833 billion Alqualondeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tirion-upon-Túna. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Alqulondean economy, worth 180 trillion Ringwraiths a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,385 Ringwraiths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, Alqulondean tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, the ABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alqulonde's national animal is the Ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaism.
