LeaderEmpress Masumi


The Great Empire of Kandorith is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Masumi with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 23.536 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 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kandorese economy, worth a remarkable 4,973 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 211,317 Zais, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

There's no weight to modern politics, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". 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 165,768th in the world and 7,526th in the South Pacific for Most Devout, with 9.17 Prayers Per Hour.
