The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Zen II with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 5.023 billion Candensians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alriora. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth 830 trillion Andens a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 165,259 Andens, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Candensia's national animal is the Almian Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Candensia is ranked 15,883rd in the world and 21st in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Drug Use, scoring 102.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
