The Great Empire of Kandorith is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Xīán with a fair hand, and renowned for its conspicuous electricity pylons, national health service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 15.122 billion Kandorese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xiǎngzhóu 香州. The average income tax rate is 44.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Kandorese economy, worth a remarkable 2,466 trillion Yuanshis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,089 Yuanshis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
School uniforms are compulsory, the internet has been placed under government control, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kandorith's national animal is the Feathered-Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shengxia Jiaoism.
