LeaderEmpress Masumi


The Great Empire of Kandorith is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Masumi with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 23.707 billion Kandorese are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenkyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kandorese economy, worth a remarkable 5,169 trillion Zais a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 218,043 Zais, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 817,969 per year while the poor average 40,619, a ratio of 20.1 to 1.

People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBK Governor goes house hunting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kandorith's national animal is the Kudokin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tendō.

Kandorith is ranked 195,654th in the world and 7,999th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 10.93 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
