The Dictatorship of Shuddera is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Vasili Valado with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.979 billion Shudderans 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 concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Defence and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Naumeria. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Automobile Manufacturing.

Political activists are routinely executed, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', and the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shuddera's national animal is the shudderian sloth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Way of Vasili Valado, and its currency is the multa dollar.

Shuddera is ranked 3,160th in the Rejected Realms and 109,628th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -19 on the Hayek Index.
