The Brown Werewolf Emirate of Ruritania Hadar Aldebaran is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emir Gilbert Caspian Vetinari with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 5.415 billion Ruritanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Szarostesotris. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.4%.

The thriving Ruritanian economy, worth 481 trillion Ankh-Morpork Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 88,856 Ankh-Morpork Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

The deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and the Ruritanian football team for the Maxxmas ceasefire consists only of Intelligence Corps personnel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ruritania Hadar Aldebaran's national animal is the Werewolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ruritania Hadar Aldebaran is ranked 22,505th in the world and 13th in Texas for Most Authoritarian, with 2,268.89 milliStalins.
