The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Zen II with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 7.468 billion Candensians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, 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 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,315 trillion Andens a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,216 Andens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, sex changes are routinely performed at Candensia's hospitals, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and the new one Anden coin also makes a handy throwing-star. 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 8,216th in the world and 14th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 12,380.79 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
