Middle Earth is a large, highly influential, founderless region, currently home to 70 nations.
Its motto, "It's a dangerous business, going out your door, you step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no know where you might be swept off to," displays the region's devotion to the writing of JRR Tolkien, namely, the Lord of the Ring, and its prelude, The Hobbit.
Nations vary from Corporate Police States to Inoffensive Centrist Democracies to Civil Rights Lovefests. Many bear a Middle Earth themed name.
Discussion of the novels is frequent and role play is encouraged.
The current World Assembly Delegate is The Noldorin Kingdom of Dor Caranthir.
