The Republic of Kandarin is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 34.774 billion Kandarinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malev. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kandarinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,713 trillion Diamond Tokens a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,792 Diamond Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Malev. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kandarin's national animal is the Jewel Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kandarin is ranked 7,478th in the world and 147th in the Rejected Realms for Most Devout, with 2,441.02 Prayers Per Hour.
