The Kingdom of Candanadium is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pieter von Juppertal with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.034 billion Candanadians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Konigstadt. The average income tax rate is 21.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Candanadian economy, worth 784 trillion thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 155,809 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, practically perfect royal toddlers tend to say "regrettably not at this juncture" rather than "no", and Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 175,300th in the world and 76th in The Democratika for Most Extreme, scoring 11.66 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
