The Institution of Candain is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Grandmaster with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.901 billion Gilder are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gild. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gilder economy, worth a remarkable 6,380 trillion Rounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 459,000 Rounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,298,875 per year while the poor average 4,133, a ratio of 1,039 to 1.

Students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, rumour has it The Grandmaster needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, and the most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Candain's national animal is the Gray puff ball rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Void.

Candain is ranked 190th in the world and 1st in The Hole To Hide In for Fattest Citizens, with 94.09 Obesity Rate.
