The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Zen II with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working population of 8.447 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 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,439 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 170,461 Andens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, the new one Anden coin also makes a handy throwing-star, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and environmental legislation occurs cyclically. 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 1,680th in the world and 2nd in The Hole To Hide In for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,598.81 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
