The Rand al'Thor Kingdom of Durenor is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Rand al'Thor with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.545 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
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 airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Kai, and its currency is the Gold Crown.
