Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Kandrian is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Jesse with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.457 billion Kandrianians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manilapolis. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The large but inefficient Kandrianian economy, worth 207 trillion Kandrianics a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,144 Kandrianics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, moonshine has made a resurgence, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, and libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kandrian's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kandrian is ranked 146,122nd in the world and 65th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.62 Crimes Per Hour.
