The Cursed Candy of Candy Pumpkin is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Candy Pumpkin with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 1.149 billion Candy Pumpkinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Octween. The average income tax rate is 18.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Candy Pumpkinian economy, worth 43.9 trillion golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,207 golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, Candy Pumpkin has just been declared ruler of Candy Pumpkin in an international press conference, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, and seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma. Crime is well under control. Candy Pumpkin's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Candy Pumpkin is ranked 88,966th in the world and 82nd in Leucippus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,154.62 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
