The Kingdom of Candanadium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Pieter von Juppertal with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.498 billion Candanadians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Konigstadt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Candanadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,441 trillion thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,282 thalers, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Candanadium, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, euthanasia is illegal, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Candanadium's national animal is the polar bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Eostrism.

Candanadium is ranked 23,839th in the world and 16th in The Democratika for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,402.37 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
