The Great Empire of Kandorith is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Masumi with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 28.085 billion Kandorese enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenkyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Kandorese economy, worth an astonishing 12,044 trillion Zais a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 428,873 Zais, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,748,238 per year while the poor average 27,311, a ratio of 100 to 1.

Billions of Zais are being blown on orbital weapons development, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, and even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kandorith's national animal is the Kudokin Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tendo.

Kandorith is ranked 255,972nd in the world and 10,975th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 7.43 percentage of bribes refused.
