The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Zen II with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 6.971 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,276 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 183,121 Andens, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, sex changes are routinely performed at Candensia's hospitals, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. 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 12,144th in the world and 20th in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 82.68 Effective Tax Rate.
