The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Zen II with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 7.982 billion Candensians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alriora. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,370 trillion Andens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,678 Andens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, sex changes are routinely performed at Candensia's hospitals, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and the new one Anden coin also makes a handy throwing-star. 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 43,271st in the world and 19th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 73.08 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
