The Kingdom of Candanadium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Richard I von Magnar with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.227 billion Candanadians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Konigstadt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Candanadian economy, worth 179 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,130 marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 602,227 per year while the poor average 23,345, a ratio of 25.8 to 1.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, the Candanadium Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land. 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 Faith of the Seven.

Candanadium is ranked 116,139th in the world and 48th in The Democratika for Highest Drug Use, scoring 34.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
