The Oppressed Peoples of The Kandy Land is a large, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 72 million Kandy Landians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Kandy Landian economy, worth 1.12 trillion Lollipops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 15,577 Lollipops, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gambling is outlawed, elections have been outlawed, piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Kandy Land's national animal is the Kandy Master, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Kandy Land is ranked 199,028th in the world and 7,820th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -95.4 on the Rand Index.
