The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Zen II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 8.219 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 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,419 trillion Andens a year, is 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 172,745 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 171,742nd in the world and 149th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Politically Free, scoring 40.76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
