Kamandé (Ka-Mân-Day) is a former region of the Federal State of Orovoda that gained its peaceful independence on July 23rd 2010. Kamandé is an African word meaning Generation, reflecting the new era the country is beginning by claiming its own rights.

Kamandé's flag national emblem is the Moon Hourglass, an object said to have been grateful to ancien civilizations of the country. According to the legend, two pieces of pure glass coming from the sky, in the shape of the Moon, landed on Earth, near the ocean, and stayed buried in the sand for hundreds of thousands years without anyone discovering them. The glass slowly began to impregnate itself of the ocean's water over the years, gaining a part of its soul. It is said that anyone with a pure mind holding the Hourglass would control time, seasons and weather and share the wisdom of water throughout his or her life. The Hourglass must be passed to the youngest of the person's children through an official ceremony shortly before death occurs. If the water inside the Hourglass continues to flow, the child is allowed to be the next holder. If the water stops and refuses to move to the bottom bulb, the Hourglass reflects the child's impure mind and foresees that neither of his or her descendants will be of good destiny. In this case, the Moon Hourglass breaks itself, the child is instantly killed and the world must wait hundreds of thousands more years for two other pieces of glass to fall from the sky.

Kamandé took a break from the Nation Song Contest after the 74th edition. On July 2nd 2015, for the 124th contest, the country sent their first official entry since their withdrawal, marking their 19th participation.

The 72nd edition of the Waiting List Song Contest was held in Kamandé's capital, Sima-Noire, after a second place from the country in the previous edition (the winner, Belvist, declined the rights to host the contest). The NSC 129 B-Final was also presented in the country, following a win in the previous edition.
