The Rand al'Thor Kingdom of Durenor is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rand al'Thor with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 22.392 billion Durenorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hammerdal. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight, political activists are routinely executed, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Durenor's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Kai, and its currency is the Gold Crown.

Durenor is ranked 2nd in The Wheel of Time and 40,406th in the world for Best Weather, with 7 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
