Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rand al'Thor Kingdom of Durenor is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Rand al'Thor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, fear of technology, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 23.358 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."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hammerdal. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Durenorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,798 trillion Gold Crowns a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,984 Gold Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. 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, and its national religion is Kai.

Durenor is ranked 153,304th in the world and 7th in The Wheel of Time for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 24.11 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
