The Great Empire of Kandorith is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Yoshiro Murakami with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 31.664 billion Kandorese enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenkyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Kandorese economy, worth an astonishing 15,306 trillion Zais a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 483,407 Zais, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, visiting the best Kandorese restaurants requires keeping a visa on file, the immigration office has an express line for people bringing cash in briefcases, and 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Kandorith's national animal is the Kudokin Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tendo.

Kandorith is ranked 28,327th in the world and 208th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 88 on the Rand Index.
