The Kingdom of Candanadium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Pieter von Juppertal with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.504 billion Candanadians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Konigstadt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Candanadian economy, worth 582 trillion thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 166,351 thalers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 628,751 per year while the poor average 30,621, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Candanadium, public executions just aren't the cheery spectacles they once were, minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Candanadium's national animal is the polar bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Eostrism.

Candanadium is ranked 67,546th in the world and 22nd in The Democratika for Most Average, scoring 41.94 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
