The Republic of Kandarin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 38.018 billion Kandarinians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malev. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kandarinian economy, worth a remarkable 4,062 trillion Diamond Tokens a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,866 Diamond Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Malev. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kandarin's national animal is the Jewel Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kandarin is ranked 234,418th in the world and 7,167th in the Rejected Realms for Most Secular, with 7.94 Atheism Rate.
