The Republic of Kandarin is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 36.289 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 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kandarinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,898 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 107,439 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 202,090th in the world and 4,961st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -10.28 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
