The Kingdom of Candanadium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pieter von Juppertal with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 11.798 billion Candanadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Konigstadt. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Candanadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,256 trillion thalers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,271 thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airport users are more worried about radiation than terrorism, this summer's chart-toppers sound almost the same as last year's, ancestry test results arrive bundled with patent applications, and the Department of Reduction of Bureaucratic Red Tape has set up a working committee to investigate its own excessive paperwork. 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 9,102nd in the world and 5th in The Democratika for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 430.28 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
