The Kandan Republic is a civilization in The Appearence Galaxy. It currently has a population of about thirty-eight billion, and owns four terrestrial planets.
The Kandan Government is split into two factions, the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch.
The Chief of State is the President; he is also the Commander in Chief of the Army and Leader of the Republic. His term lasts for eight years, after which he cannot be reelected. The President can declare war, raise or lower taxes, overturn a legal decision by the Legislative Branch, and can remove members of the Regional Congresses but not the Grand Congress.
The Legislative Branch is split into two different branches itself. The Grand Congress makes laws and approves laws from the Regional Congress. The Regional Congresses are in every state (there are 20 states on each planet) and make laws and hear court cases. There are 200 members of both Congresses. Only one congressman is required to hear a court case. There are 200 Grand Congressmen, and 16,000 members of the Regional Congress.
The Kandan Republic has a modest military, due to their isolationist nature. They of course have an Army, Air Force, and Space Navy, although not much funding goes there.
The Kandans are peaceful by nature, but also staunch isolationists. They are not members of the Capita Council and prefer not to be involved in the problems of the rest of the galaxy. They have closed borders, but they accept outsiders who are hurt or injured due to their peaceful attitude.
First Contact and DiplomacyEdit
The Kandans were first contacted in March of 2011. They are currently apathetic to all problems and issues in The Appearence, and maintain a neutral nature.
Like most known civilizations in The Appearence, the Kandans are members of the Bion Federation's Trade Route Consortium. They export various items and import items not found on their planet.
