Candensia was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 308

The Royal Dominion of Candensia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Zen II with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 8.192 billion Candensians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alriora. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Candensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,407 trillion Andens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,767 Andens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, the new one Anden coin also makes a handy throwing-star, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and environmental legislation occurs cyclically. 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 9,699th in the world and 18th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,329.77 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
