The Rand al'Thor Kingdom of Durenor is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Rand al'Thor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 21.789 billion 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 concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and the Environment are secondary priorities. 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.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, criminals are executed and their property seized, citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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.

Durenor is ranked 1st in The Wheel of Time and 2,779th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 4.423 Stalins.
