Mordor (Sindarin: Black Land, Quenya: Land of Shadow) is located in South East Middle Earth to the east of the River Anduin.
Thoroughly unpleasant. The region of Mordor has rarely been dealt kind hand. Successive colonial powers have done little to clean the place up and there is still no functioning train service. The recent large scale eruption of Mount Doom, and the associated collateral damage just might (only might) encourage a more enlightened approach to development in the region.
Mordor is surrounded on three sides by large mountain ranges: Ered Lithui (Ash Mountains) in the the north, Ephel Duath (Mountains of Shadow) to the west bordering the region of Gondor, and extending round to the south. Generally they are not very nice.
Orcish is the native tounge. Strangely similar to English.
One does not simply walk in to Mordor. You gotta rock in to Mordor. Or take the shortbus.
Mordor is quite unique amongst A-list destinations in that it tends to see you rather better than you see it.
Do not sleep in Mordor.
