The Dictatorship of Shuddera is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Vasili Valado with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.115 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, although Defense, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, 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 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Shudderan economy, worth a remarkable 3,765 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 178,351 multa dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power, Jennifer Government is banned, and anyone who doesn't attend Official Governmental Religious Services is fined. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Way of Vasili Valado.

Shuddera is ranked 11,039th in the world and 204th in the Rejected Realms for Smartest Citizens, with 80.4 Quips Per Hour.
