The Anocracic States of Ridurha is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.294 billion Ridurhans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.4%.

The very strong Ridurhan economy, worth 84.3 trillion Ridurhan Penars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 65,178 Ridurhan Penars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 251,839 per year while the poor average 11,581, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, the death penalty has been reintroduced, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Ridurha's national animal is the Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Ridurha is ranked 61,358th in the world and 12th in United Nations UN for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,387.77 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
