The Republic of Candavia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Petko Boskovksi with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.587 billion Candavians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skopje. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Candavian economy, worth 241 trillion candas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 152,436 candas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 509,051 per year while the poor average 33,959, a ratio of 15.0 to 1.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and an enormous health awareness programme is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Candavia's national animal is the bottlenose dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Christianity.

Candavia is ranked 12,926th in the world and 188th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 152,436.49 Standard Monetary Units.
