The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Zen II with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working population of 8.831 billion Candensians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, 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 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,508 trillion Andens a year, is quite specialized and 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 170,863 Andens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Alriora" t-shirts, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, every citizen sounds like a television news anchor, and King Zen II's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success. 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 22,389th in the world and 35th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,978.2 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
