The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Queen Arissa I with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.6 billion Candensians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alriora. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth 602 trillion Andens a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 167,398 Andens, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Candensia's national animal is the Silverwing Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Candensia is ranked 8,852nd in the world and 13th in The Hole To Hide In for Nicest Citizens, with 30.38 Average Smiles Per Day.
