Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dictatorship of Shuddera is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Vasili Valado with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.013 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."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Naumeria. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Shudderan economy, worth a remarkable 3,567 trillion multa dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,267 multa dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Atheists on vacation find The Way of Vasili Valado's scriptures make useful doorstops, the nation has been sent to bed early for unspecified naughtiness, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and Vasili Valado's new android secretary is the latest media darling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shuddera's national animal is the shudderian sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Way of Vasili Valado.

Shuddera is ranked 149,106th in the world and 3,020th in the Rejected Realms for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 9.89 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
