The Allied States of The Andromeda Islands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The National Assembly with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.93 billion Andromedans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andromeda City. The average income tax rate is 40%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Retail and Tourism.

The welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem. The Andromeda Islands's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Andromedan Dollar.

The Andromeda Islands is ranked 25th in Confederacy of Allied States and 60,029th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -6 on the Hayek Index.
