The Empire of Andy the Benevolent is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.077 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 3,409th in Osiris and 111,236th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -21 on the Hayek Index.
