The Great Empire of Kandorith is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Masumi with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 21.621 billion Kandorese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenkyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kandorese economy, worth a remarkable 4,030 trillion Tens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,396 Tens, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, one complaint of Kandorith's new periodic table is it's easy to confuse fearlessleaderium with gloriousleaderium, there's a politician called Male Infant Trevelyan, and Empress Masumi can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kandorith's national animal is the Umo-Yori, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tendō.

Kandorith is ranked 60,896th in the world and 2,374th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 63.52 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
