The Republic of Candelaria And Marquez is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Fanny Tan with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 25.209 billion Candelariasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albrecht. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Candelariasian economy, worth 988 trillion reformed pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,212 reformed pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, meat-eating is frowned upon, graffiti graces every city's streets, and citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Candelaria And Marquez's national animal is the giant toad called Hope, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Candelaria And Marquez is ranked 152,825th in the world and 72nd in Rushmore for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 47.41 Workforce Participation Rate.
