Tell me please what is the meaning of やらなればならない, maybe it's やらなければならない but still... Full sentence: 国がやらなればならない全てのことを、不蝕金鎖が担い、一定の秩序をつくりあげたのだ。 Thank you very much for the help! enter image description here

As you correctly guessed, it is a typo for やらなければならない. – Tsuyoshi Ito Feb 16 '13 at 19:56

As @Tsuyoshi points out, やらなればならない is a typo. However, やらなければならない (and the more or less equivalent やらなくてはならない) do have several well-established contractions:

  • やらなけりゃならない
  • やらなきゃならない
  • やらなくちゃならない
