The Oppressed Peoples of The Risen Horde is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 10.559 billion Risen Hordeans 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 enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.2%.

The large but sluggish Risen Hordean economy, worth 349 trillion Braaaaains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,113 Braaaaains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, The Risen Horde is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, the last thing Risen Hordean soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Risen Horde's national animal is the Braaaaains, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Risen Horde is ranked 134,301st in the world and 930th in Devide by Zero for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,117.62 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
