The Great Empire of Kandorith is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Masumi with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 24.222 billion Kandorese are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenkyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kandorese economy, worth a remarkable 5,812 trillion Zais a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 239,952 Zais, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 707,171 per year while the poor average 64,066, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

The government is slowly introducing social welfare programs, the new Really Big Telescope has been praised for presenting pictures of bright dots in unprecedented detail, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and police officers catch up on their paperwork while handing their caseload to PIs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kandorith's national animal is the Kudokin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tendō.

Kandorith is ranked 57,217th in the world and 2,077th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,343.65 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
