The Great Empire of Kandorith is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Xīn with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 18.358 billion Kandorese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xiǎngzhu 香州. The average income tax rate is 51.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kandorese economy, worth a remarkable 2,979 trillion Yuanshis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 162,321 Yuanshis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Yuanshis of property damage, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kandorith's national animal is the Feathered-Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shengxia Jiaoism.

Kandorith is ranked 6,244th in the world and 56th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Smartest Citizens, with 103.82 Quips Per Hour.
