The Empire of Andy the Benevolent is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.897 billion Andy the Benevolentians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Andy the Benevolent with a very polite populace, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, euthanasia is illegal, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Andy the Benevolent's national animal is the hamster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the hamster pelt.

Andy the Benevolent is ranked 20th in Osiris and 990th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 17 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
