The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Zen II with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.981 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 77.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth 664 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 166,866 Andens, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Candensia's national animal is the Silverwing Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Candensia is ranked 8,699th in the world and 7th in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 428,811.13 Standard Monetary Units.
