Could be.

As you say, Gondor is on the skids and Arnor has fallen. Esgaroth has fallen onto hard times, but never seems to have had a great deal of influence on the rest of the world. If the East-elves are organized, we don't learn of it. There are the Elven realms, but they are largely isolationist and don't have a great impact on their neighbors. The Dwarves of the Blue Mountains and the Iron Hills mind their own business and we learn little about other Dwarves. Dorwinion might be a land of wines and (maybe) merchant-princes, but it doesn't seem to represent a great political power. Any other powerful empires or confederations seem to be far to the East or South and are likely aligned with Sauron (though they might need to be reminded of this after his long absence).
