The Great Empire of Kandorith is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Xīán with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.019 billion Kandorese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded 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 26.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Kandorese economy, worth a remarkable 1,861 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 154,858 Yuanshis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique, and the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence. 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.
