The Mechanized Dominion of Candain is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Protector with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.792 billion Sprites are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Complex. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Night Sprite economy, worth a remarkable 7,247 trillion Ga Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 458,966 Ga Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,298,555 per year while the poor average 4,133, a ratio of 1,039 to 1.

The most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones, bounty hunters have been dispatched to hunt down rogue bounty hunters, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", and medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Candain's national animal is the Hatchlings, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Children of Celosia.

Candain is ranked 1,204th in the world and 2nd in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 69,217.77 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
